I can't believe it's almost been 2 months since Eric and I went here - where does the time go?? I have been itching to share these pictures from our trip to the Catacombs in Paris though, so I thought it was high time that I posted about our final day in Paris before we headed to Lyon.
The Catacombs were on my must do list right after the Eiffel Tower. The wait was 2 hours outside in the rain, which forced me to take many breaks in a nearby McDonalds to eat cheeseburgers and use the wifi (I hadn't eaten a McD's cheeseburger since 2009, but I fell in love with them. I know, so gross). Once you get in you head down the teeniest spiral staircase, which made me very nauseous, and go through some museum exhibits. Then you get to the bones. SO MANY BONES.
I was honestly a bit creeped out after awhile. Just when you say, "Ok, I've seen enough skeletons for my lifetime", you turn a corner and there's another long passageway of bones. Some of the passageways were really artistic, with the skulls arranged in lines or heart shapes, while other rooms were just stacks on stacks of femurs. Eric touched a skull. I kept wondering where the secret movie theater was.
