It wasn't just museums, cathedrals, and a big cemetery. We spent a morning at the Paris Opera House. I couldn't stop humming Masquerade from Phantom of the Opera as we walked down the grand staircase. There were 2 smaller matching reception areas on either end of the grand reception room. One of the rooms had this lovely ceiling with bats. There were many times I wanted to drop on the floor and shoot photos while on my back. Resisted the urge as it was very crowded.

Our first trip to Europe was a success. Our very last day in Paris was spent at Pere Lachaise cemetery. We walked the cemetery for hours and only covered a small portion. Its a must see again to finish the tour.

La Befana and Friends

This is yet another great piece from artist GrimQuiet on etsy. He also offered Krampus Lanterns you can see if you click on his sold items...
