Bonjour! It's currently raining out and we came back to the hotel to have a rest and get ready for the 11pm show at the Moulin Rouge. Luckily there is a metro station not even 1 block from our hotel and it's on the same line at the stop
right out front erof the Moulin Rouge.

This morning we went to the Catacombes. I'm not sure how I can express what I thought of them. It's very interesting, but kind of disturbing at the same time. After that we went to the Montparnasse cemetery where we save the graves for Simone de Beauvoir and Sartre. It was kind of cool to see all of the different family crypts and the different ways in which people
have been remembered by their loved ones. The cemetery was very well cared for and it was quite peaceful. We continued on to the Montmatre area afterward where we took another funicular up to Sacre-Coeur (the first church in Paris) where there was a beautiful view of Paris below. We went in to the church-no pictures and no talking please- and I have to say that of all of the churches we have gone to over this trip, Sacre-Coeur may be my favourite one. Then we decided to take a train tour around Montmatre after visiting the church.

Now it's time to get ready for tonight's show at the Moulin Rouge. I'm really not sure what to expect. The name of the show is 'Feerie'.

Update: So, the show at the Moulin Rouge was okay. I think it's a neat thing to do as a tourist, but it's a one-time kind of thing. The costumes were very sparkly. I have no pictures of anything inside though because cameras weren't allowed in the venue.
