I met up with Derek to check out the Catacombs, luckily they have just reopened and we could both visit properly...
Catacombs are trully eary and spooky, they are the site where bodies where kept when a large part of paris was getting sick. They built an underground lair, and when you walk through it you have a sense that everything is a bit too neat. Once you get through what seems to be a never ending spiral staircase, you walk through the labirynth of narrow halls and then you get to the sulls and bones. The humans bones and skulls are so precise, obviously measured and calculated to make the stacks line up properly. When walking through the halls you feel like you are in an Indiana Jones movie a bit, maybe also tales from the crypt :) I told Derek, "it would be funny if they would make a random skull roll off the stack and fall on the floor, that would REALLY scare the visitors!!!" Yes I know, that comment was a bit twisted mwhahahahaha
Everyone decided that we would meet in Monmartre as a large group, being that it is our last night together and have a proper dinner.

After dinner we were off to find a place for more drinks, but first.... WE STOP AT A SEX SHOP!
Funniest moment ever, after about 10 minutes walking around the shop, laughing at all the accessories Lori looks up at one of many screens around the place and shockingly says, "Look its porn!"... We finally find a bar to hold us all, they had a live band playing some rock & roll songs and prices were decent.
After some of the others gotten drank a bit too much earlier in the trip there everyone was thinking WHO WILL IT BE, WHO WILL BE THE 'WINNER'??? After a bunch of shots, vodka/orange, more shots I think it was the tequila that did me in (Thanks Derek) All I really remember is waking up at about 3am in the hotel room to a room full of Scottish lads jumping on the beds and acting all crazy...
It was a good night, I am not drinking for awhile, OK atleast one night lol
Let me get my 1 hour sleep before flight to Dublin, Goodbye Paris....
