Sacré-Coeur Basilica

sunny 6 °C

Well well well, another day, another day of train strikes, we havent had much luck in the old city of Paris. If only these two humans could swim like me, then we would be able to get everywhere much faster. As it is i swim on ahead and then have to wait for them to catch up, talk about dawdling.

Anyway; today we headed off to the above mentioned church; it is a huge church situated write on top of a hill that looks out over Paris, the view is quite amazing and well worth the many steps that we cllimbed to get there. (Editor: Matt and Jess climbed, Flapper laid back in his backpack). Yes Well anyway...... at the top of the hill the church rises high into the air and especially the towers that stick out from it. We had lots of fun trying to guess which parts of Paris we were looking at, until we found a sign that told us what all the buildings we could see were, ruined our game really.

Then it was back to the hotel to gether our things and head off to the train. For lunch we had a Doner kebab whiwh is the european version of a yiros, cept they give it to you in a roll and serve it with chips so its actually quite good value for 4 euros. So then we attempted to enter the train station near our hostel only to find that it had been closed for the strike and that no trains would run on that line all day. So it was more walking for Matt and Jess. Luckily the two main lines were running quite normally and the trains werent too crowded and everything managed to fit inside.

The hotel that we are staying in tonight is really nice, each room is decorated in a different style and ours is decorrated in Japanese. So i am hoping for some fish for tea, i think they should serve food according to your room. Pity the humans dont like fish.

Tomorrow its off to sunny England and the next pqrt of our holiday. We are all looking forward to remaining in one place for more than acouple of nights so that should be good.

If you're in a station in France and there's no one there to hear the trains....Does that mean they're still running? Ahhhhhh England....the home of golf, soccer, foxtel and chips. Is there anything they can't do?
