Thursday – holiday in Paris

Thursday was Ascension Day in Paris, so a holiday for most Parisians.  I went to Notre Dame, along with a million other tourists to take in its beauty.  Fortunately, there was Mass going on at the time and I must say it was very special to be in that setting listening to organ music and a choir.

The church theme continued with a visit to Sainte Chapelle, or as I like to call it “Shiny World”.  For the price of a whopping 8 euros, you get to see a lot of amazing stained glass.  Shiny….pretty….plus you get shushed for talking.  Guess beauty has its price….
