I'd Like An Audience With The Pope...

I'd like to tell him he owes me a visit to Notre Dame. When we got to this beautiful church, we noticed a stage being set up next door and a whole lot of French policemen and women strolling about. This would have been a handy time for one of us to suddenly be granted the gift of tongues. There were pictures of the Pope everywhere, but the writing was all in French (go figure...). Had either Carol or I read or spoken French, we would have learned that the Pope was due to visit Notre Dame that evening and therefore the church was closed to tourists. :) As it was, we only got pictures of the outside of the building.








































Pretty cool huh? Don't feel too bad for me though. To drown my sorrows, we walked next door to a cafe and ordered this!! Yummy!!!!

You didn't get to go inside. That's like going to Disneyland and having Pirates of the Caribbean closed or It's a Small World. I guess you'll just have to go back =)

I have a great story about Notre Dame next time we chat. I'm bummed you didn't get to go in, but if you're anything like me that yummy food probably went a long way to making life good again. :)

Gorgeous! I think you should send the Pope an "bill" for the visit he owes you. Wonder if it would reach him if you mailed it to "Pope, Vactican City"....
