The last time I was up on the hill of Montmartre the sun was shining and the sky was blue. It’s too chilly today, and has been for over a week, to venture there. There was actually a dusting of snow on the ground on the morning I wrote this-not a good thing when trying to make your way up and down streets and steps.

Some of the steps on Montmartre for that aerobic workout.

Sacre Coeur looks so great against a blue sky.

There aren’t many artists in Montmartre when it gets cold but always a few.
