One of my dearest friends, Ron, was visiting Paris for work, and I was able to find a super cheap price on an airline to go see him. With only two days to see some typical Parisian sights together, we chose our first expedition to include Montmartre and Sacre Coeur. While I have been to Montmartre with my tribe from school, this time we had the luxury of actually going into the structure.
Montmartre is a climb into the upper reaches of Paris, and there is an art market and several restaurants on the top that cater to tourist clientele. To avoid the crowd, we slipped into a nearby church with some beautiful stained glass. We browsed, we found a park to sit and relax in the shade. And then, when we were ready, we went into Sacre Coeur to see this amazing church that dominates the landscape for miles around.
