So while in Paris I got to Visit Jim Morison's Grave!!! it was a small grave and it is sad to say that the bust that had been made in the image of Morison was stolen along with his grave chipped away at and vandalized.... hence the fence these where the best pictures i could get and i am so glad that our teacher Dan took me!
I also got to go to the Catacombs ... i don't know why but i really felt ...nice down there? like i appreciated getting to see them and even though it looks like a scary place... it was not. In some of the skulls you could actually see perfect circles showing that they died from a gun shot. I really liked taking pictures down there bc it is not something i could ever do when i get home. I think i will go back next time.
And....THE Thinker!!! It is the statue by Auguste Rodin that i got to see when i went to the the Rodin Museum -www.rodinmuseum.org/ is the link if you want to see more works . my personal favorite was The Gates of Hell and don't worry i will put a picture up of it too!
