Layouts 55 and 56


I'm a bit late this weekend, but here are the next installments from my Paris album.

After out trip out to Rouen, we had just enough time to dash off the train, get changed and walk down the rue to the Moulin Rouge.  We'd decided to splash out on tickets for a dinner and the show at the Moulin Rouge.  The photo above was actually taken on a different night - we weren't allowed to take our camera into the show so we left it at home rather than risk cloaking it.

The top left and bottom right photos are ones we took, the others are stock photos off the internet.  The middle left photo was one I was pleased to find, as it showed pretty much the exact table we sat st for the show!  We were about 3 rows back in the tiered section and nearly directly in the middle.  Perfect view!  We shared our table with a lovely couple from South Africa who we enjoyed chatting with during breaks in the show.  We loved the Moulin Rouge, it was a fabulous dinner and a spectacular show.

The next day we were up and going early, with our first stop being the Cemetery Montematre, near where we were staying.  There were lots more famous people buried there, including Adolph Sax, Offenbach, Degas and Alexandre Dumas.  Actually, Dumas has been shifted to the Pantheon, but his grave is still there. It was a pretty cemetery, not as gothic as the other one we visited - I can't recall it's name right now!

Bye for now,
