I will be posting pictures from our trip as days progress and I work my way through them. They won’t be in trip order but you get the idea. We went to Montmarte, the highest point in Paris. You get to see the beautiful city below from the perch of the steps of Sacre-Cour, a memorial to the 58,000 French soldiers that were killed during the Franco-Prussian war that was built in 1923.

There were street performers playing the guitar with a great crowd just relaxing on the steps and taking in the scenery. We spent much of the day here doing the same.

By far, the coolest thing we saw was the kid juggling a soccer ball on top of a post over-looking the city. These pictures and video do it no justice. I could have stayed there for hours and watched his tricks.
