Paris day 4

Day 4 was a big day.....Pablo Picasso Museum, Montmartre District and a sunset trip to the Eiffel Tower.
Below, the Picasso museum. An artist had a show at the museum. He divided the building in two with scaffolding and the center piece is a huge mirror. I am not sure what it means, I will have to ask Khara to read the piece and comment here.

After the Picasso museum we rode the Metro to the Montmartre district...we exited from another great Art Deco Metro stop.

I should not forget to note that we had lunch at a great cafe that serves savory crepes. They were great!

We started our Monmarte walk at the top of the hill that Sacre-Coeur Basilica sits on. It is an impressive sight.

Up and up the stairs....closer and closer to the Church.Cindy, ready for the climb.A much closer view. The view of Paris from the top.
Christy and Cindy in front of a old nightclub that Edith Piaf frequently sang at.
Some street scenes from the Montmartre district.Some great random street art.More random street art.
Another great cafe scene from Montmartre.
Many things are covered with graffiti in Paris, including this delivery van.A statue of Saint Denis the patron saint of Paris.
Christy buying scarves on the street.At the end of the Montmartre walk we came across Moulin Rouge.

Getting our moneys worth from Bob Steves. He was telling us all about how the Eiffel Tower was built during the time of the Protestant Reformation by George Washington in Ohio and brought over to France on the Titanic piece by piece by Martin Luther himself right after the Vietnam conflict. You get what you pay for.

Christy took a great shot of the Tower from the bottom. I think cat-sitter Marie requested this shot.

Another interesting shot below the tower at sunset.

Christy took a great detail shot of the iron work.

The three of us at the top of the Eiffel Tower at night. It was spectacular!
