Before hitting up Paris, we stopped in champagne for breakfast and drinks. Cause that’s how it goes in Europe. We left at 5 am and arrived in Champagne about 9. Although, we visited the Notre Dame of Reims beforehand to pray for forgiveness. It was gorgeous but raining so not many photos were taken. I kept myself limited to 15 photos (I know I surprised myself).
The Pommery Champagnery(?) is celebrating 140 years so they have a large modern art exhibit in the cellars. Everything is blue, including the trees. This is a champagne bottle made out of champagne bottles.
This is a short post but not to worry another will be up shortly. Do something productive while you anxiously await the post. And as always, more photos available on my Flickr.
Lesson of the day: Even if you didn’t watch a safety video at a hostel, you should still evacuate when a very loud hallway alarm wakes you up at 1:15 am. And although we were in a room of six none of us thought to actually leave. Even if it turns out to be nothing.
*Professor Greeley taught a religion class in Lux so I asked her about the beheaded statues. Apparently those were actually done by French Revolutionaries later. It was a response to the many beheadings done and so they picked prominent Saints to do at many Cathedrals. Update: this statue was built purposely beheaded but there are many other statues without heads
