Sacré Coeur

On day 3 in Paris found me wandering up near Montmartre and Sacré Coeur in northern Paris.  First I checked out the impressive Sacré Coeur basilica.  That alone was well worth the trip to the area with (at least to my knowledge) rather unique architecture.  I then took some time and walked around the Montmartre area, checking out the artists in the square and also te restaurants.  I had actually started out the day with someone, but we got into an argument and she ended up leaving.  The bad news for me was that she had the map and I was unfamiliar with the area.  Luckily I found a group of people in the supermarket who gave me an extra map they had.

I took a lunch break and then wandered down to the Moulin Rouge, just to see what it was all about.

  The area was a bit stetchy, and there were lots of interesting establishments on the strip.  I then saw the Academie Nationale de Musique, and made my way to the church of Mary Magdelene, which was an enormous church in the area.

I then walked along the Seine river for a while, and I passed the Musée d'Orsay.  Again, I wasn't huge on the art, so I didn't go in.  as the day wound down, I had heard there were going to be live bands along the river, to celebrate something or other, I had no idea what.  After grabbing some dinner in a restaurant, I went to see this festival.  All it turned out to be were some small bands playing in restaurants.  After I got bored (which didn't take long), I walked a ways back to the Place da la Concorde and checked out the main area of Paris at night.
