A Cold Walk

A very dear friend of mine is here in Paris. We set out to Montmartre the other day and I wore my light winter jacket which turned out to be a mistake and I just about froze to death before I got home. It barely got above freezing all day. I survived however and we had an interesting walk through the Montmartre cemetery as we headed toward the metro.

A very unusual family tomb. Note the leaden gray skies.

I took her to see this tomb of Dalida, a famous French pop singer who lived in Montmartre. She was actually from Egypt.

This is the tomb of the famous cancan dancer painted by Toulouse Lautrec.

I took this one because the flower looked so yellow against the gray statue. It’s a bit out of focus. I think I will have to get a new IPhone soon.

By the time we got to the metro it was dark and it was nice to see the Moulin Rouge lit up at night.

  1. Wearing the wrong jacket can be a disaster! Glad you were able to keep going. Lovely pictures. I especially like that one with the flower (?tulip) on the statue. I would have taken that too.

  2. I would love to wander around that cemetery, perhaps on a warmer day! The sky did add to the drama of some of the photos, however.
