The haunting's upon us all tonight.
A FRIGHTFUL HALLOWE'EN to everyone! >:-)
On Wednesday, my second and final full day in Paris, I had a pretty action-packed program: First walking in the artistic quarters of Montmartre, including a visit to the characteristic basilica of Sacré-Cœur. Then I went down to Île de la Cité to admire another famous Parisian church: Notre-Dame. From there I went on a nice boat trip on the Seine, past all the famous sites along the river. In the afternoon I visited the architectonic monstrosity called the Pompidou Centre, with its huge collection of modern art. Inspiring and stimulating. After a rather unsuccessful attempt to consume a three-course dish, I strolled along Champs-Élysées for a while before returning to my room at the hotel and concluding my cultural day in front of the telly and the art channel ARTE, accompanied by a cognac from the bottom shelf. A nice rounding off of a stay that fortunately got more pleasurable after a while.
The day after I returned to Norway and Bergen, visiting my brother and sister-in-law - and not least my little nephew Bo for the very first time. But that's another story.
