No hunchbacks here

We've been very fortunate with the weather here. We've had sunshine the entire time, and even though it's been cold in the mornings and evenings it's been rather pleasant.

The Notre Dame is just a km from our apartment, and we walked there via the Seine.

We were impressed by the cathedral. It's considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. Having been to St Peters I thought that would taint my view on other cathedrals, but the Notre Dame is definitely unique and amazing.

We all talked in hushed tones inside. There were lots of people taking mass and praying.

The queue was way too long to go up to the tower, and we knew Kien wouldn't be able to handle standing around for ages, so we went across the street to the park where Kien was able to run around and take pictures. He is really enjoying taking pictures and is rather thoughtful at composing his shots. He verbalises the whole process, which is interesting for me to hear what is doing on in his little head.
