montmartre...

This is Montmartre... the highest point in Paris. It is also a former artist area. And it holds a beautiful cathedral. Not too shabby, huh?

Well... one thing everybody should do in Montmartre is see the cemetery. It is amazing... a little creepy, but amazing none the less! The monuments people used to build to celebrate a life was insane! I believe many people thought the more money they spent and the bigger it was, the closer they came to God (just like the cathedrals!)

Well... we went to visit Degas... very simple... much moreso than some of the others we found...... like this one... for some random actor... the scary jester creeps me out...
... or this one with the sad girl scattering flowers on a pacque showing the face of the man in the crypt...
... or my favorite one... the bright blue crypt. I'm not too sure who's in it... but we know two things from looking at it... (1) time flies and (2) the Angel of Death took him on a ship (as shown in the last photo I took) because it was right on the crypt!
