We were looking forward to a gospel rock concert (free!) at the Notre dame Cathedral this evening.
Turns out that it happened last evening. Disappointed, we decided to climb the steep spiral staircase that goes right to the top of the cathedral. Normally, one has to pay 5 euros to enter but clearly the Lord wanted to make amends, and so we paid nothing, it being the first Sunday of the month!
We huffed and puffed and huffed and puffed and after 15 minutes that seemed like 60, we reached the top.
On our way down the cathedral I did the counting act, and figured I had lost a few calories climbing more than 600 steps (both ways). Its a different story that I made up for it by eating a cheesified home-made italian dinner afterwards.
