A Trip to Paris - A Statue and the Sacré-Cœur - Day 5, part 1

After a few lovely days in Paris it was already time to go home again.
But our train wouldn't leave until the end of the afternoon, so lots of time for a last bit of sightseeing.

First we had breakfast.
Croissants and hot chocolate. Yum.

Then we had a look at Place de la République.

The statue on the square was full of pamphlets and paint.
They were all about the assault on Charlie Hebdo.

It gave me a bit of a chill I will confess.

Time to do something more fun.
The sun was shining and it was warm, so after we did a bit of shopping we decided to do some touristy things.

We visited the Sacré-Cœur again.

It looked a lot different with the blue sky and the sun shining on it.

We paid to visit the crypt and had a look around.

It was beautiful.

Next we decided to visit the dome of the Sacré-Cœur.
More on that tomorrow.
