Steve and I awoke fairly early and headed out for our last tour with Sight Seekers Delight -- the most wonderful sight seeing tour company I have ever experienced (and I've experienced many). Lucie was our guide today, and she was wonderful.
We were on our way to meet our tour -- we knew it was a longer metro ride than we had previously experienced, so we left ourselves an hour to get there (should take 45 minutes from where we are staying). Well -- in the bizarre twist of the day -- Steve got in the metro but I was too slow so I stuck my cane in the door as it closed -- off went the train with Steve inside and my cane hanging out the door.
We met up with the tour guide Lucie and two of the other travelers from the other day -- so good to reconnect with them! Once again it was the perfect small group tour. Thank you Karen from Sight Seeker's Delight for this great tour!
We continued up the street and got to see various pictures of art painted on the buildings by modern street artists as we heard about the lives of famous artists that lived in Montmarte -- including Van Gogh and Picasso.
Here is a picture of the placque that is on the wall of the place that Van Gogh lived (his brother Theo's place).
We continued walking and saw many great things and heard all the stories -- I'm not sharing everything because I refuse to give away the whole of this tour.
We made our way down the hill.
Back to the hotel after that to write the rest of my sermon for tomorrow.
An early-ish dinner and then now to bed.
Can't wait to be at the Cathedral again tomorrow!
Here are some other pictures --
