Somebody managed to build an enormous glass box all around Notre Dame Cathedral!

When the chandelier fell in the first act of "The Phantom of the Opera", this is where they brought it

There was a line of tourists waiting to take pictures here

All day long, this devil gazes at the Eiffel Tower

Ljudmila pets the gargoyles

You can only see this roof garden from the top of Notre Dame Cathedral

The east view of Paris

We had to climb about 400 steps up to the top. Then we had to climb back down (apparently there are no waterslides at the top of the cathedral)

Considering our journey of the thousand steps

I had to take this photo THREE TIMES to get it right

Martine Kellet hosted a marvelous dinner in Paris (photo courtesy of Ann Borgschulte)

Ann snaps the dinner party: Martine, Jason, Suzy, Tim and Ljudmila
