montmartre et basilique sacre couer
Our first big excursion was to the Montmartre neighborhood. It sits on a tall hill overlooking the city. Opportunists sell trinkets and play music for wide-eyed tourists. Fortunately, there was still peace in the church. Women at the door turned away men and women dressed inappropriately, and the sanctuary, though crowded, was not inundated by flashes going off indiscriminately. We climbed to the top of the towers, and I got my first view of le Tour Eiffel.
