Perhaps because I'm still off work due to 'the big chill', I've been looking at lots of blogs and realise how sadly lacking in photographic imagery this one is. So I've added some. Here's a photo of the crypt in the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Boulogne taken in November. It's strange down there. Not only is it very cold but it's full of broken things. According to Wikipedia, the crypt dates back for centuries and the Romanesque columns date back to C11th. The spaces are painted in pastel washes of orange, blue and green and parts of it are shored up with concrete. In places the ceilings are decorated with stars. To get in you have to pay an old gentlemen, who holds up two fingers and then charges three euros. Maybe he thinks the exchange rate is improving?
