Day 13: Notre Dame, Paris

The beauty of Paris’ French gothic Notre Dame is immediately evident. Its grand spires reach toward the sky and the façade is too intricate to take in with a mere glance. After walking down the nave and getting a good view of the altar and all the beautiful gothic chandeliers and stained glass windows, we head out towards the garden. There is a man and some children holding out little pieces of bread as birds come and peck right out of their hands. Chrysanthemums, daisies, poppies, and bright yellow football mums line the outside of Our Lady. It’s a beautiful sight to behold and reminds you why Paris is often referred to as “The City of Love.”
