57044--Last day

sacre coeur

We took the metro up to Monmartre and walked up the hill to walk around. There were lots of people out--tourists and locals. The weather was gorgeous for this time of year--sunny, so there were a lot of people just hanging out and sitting on the steps. There were a bunch of musician scattered about, including a bag piper. We walked around in the church for a while, then walked the streets.


There were lots of artists on the square, both painting and selling. Quite a few were doing sketches of the tourists who wanted them. Others were doing simple landscapes of the neighborhood and beyond.


Detail from the above image. The artist's bench. I love how this tells a story all it's own.

We are all packed and ready to go in the morning. If all goes according to plan, a taxi will meet us at our front door and take us to the airport and we are on the way home.
