A week in Paris - Day 4

In case you've been wondering why I've been so quiet this past week (besides the impromptu lunch-time congratulations post)...I didn't suffer from a bout of Alzheimers, I suffered from a bout of internetlessness...We're actually still suffering from internetlessness, it's rather annoying.

So this post is brought to you courtesy of my cellphone's ridiculously-slow-but-still-better-than-no-internet wifi hotspot!

Since I posted day 3, I've been dying to share day 4 of Paris with you. Having said that, here is what we got up to on a cold, damp and very windy day in Paris!
We started off at the Panthéon, as you can see it was undergoing some structural maintenance.
Then we made our way to the Cluny Museum, just for a peek - It's super medieval, next time we'll go inside! We then wandered through a very villagey type of cobble stoned market near the Notre Dame, with little bars, coffee shops, bakeries and cheese fondue restaurants.
Next stop...Notre Dame! Breathtakingly beautiful and awe inspiring! It was also a good reprieve from the cold! It was way to cold to go up the towers, so next time that's a must for us!
After about an hour at Notre Dame walked to the Bastille, and then we made our way back to Montmartre, in search of dinner, stopping by the Moulin Rouge again, since it was on the way.
After dinner we went in search of dessert, looking for our favourite creperie, for some delicious nutella crepes!
Followed by a leisurely stroll back to the hotel, I think I left a little piece of my heart here in the streets of Montmartre...
