August 2011

Dr. J was fortunate enough to take a trip in late July and early August to Munich, Salzburg, Amsterdam and Paris.
Here are some pictures from the first two days in Paris.

Basilique du Sacré-Coeur (Sacred Heart) is the Roman Catholic Basilica that was built between 1875 and 1914 as a national penance for the supposed excesses of the Second Empire of France,
for the socialist (the horror!) Paris Commune of 1871, and for the establishment of conservative moral order in the wild-living Montmartre area. It is a magnificent cathedral.
