Paris, Part 2

In about 15 minutes Randy and I leave Paris for Lyon. The past few days have been fun, although wet. After a few good weather days at the beginning, the last two were full of rain (and a spectacular lightning storm last night).

We did manage to sqeeuze in numerous activities: the Catacombs (which I visited last year) and the Paris Sewer Tour. I had expected this to be a tour of old (no longer used) sewer lines, but you actually walk on grates above active running sewer lines. Oh yes, there was the smell….and the sights….of raw sewage. Still, it was an interesting tour. Most of the exhibits were suspending over the running sewage so you can hear it (smell it) while you walk.

ANd now we’re off. I’ll write more later!

    I enjoyed Lyon a great deal–I hope you hafe a great time there. Two rivers, so four embankments to stroll, and a superb Gallo-Roman museum.
