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!

Well these photos are from a while ago... the one is a sign of AirBus the day we got to take a tour of the building and that is about as far as our cameras where aloud to go... they are afraid of spies i guess and publicity. we where the second biggest building in the world and it was fantastic!!! the Airbus plains are also amazing and the only bigger building than that one is the one owned by Bowing the competitors to Airbus. The A.B. building is in Toulouse.
Beside that is the picture of Colin i took a long long time ago of him chillin on our ... i guess you would call it a balcony and i really loved the fog and just the way he seemed to be so comfortable sitting out there... so yea i really like this picture thanks Colin. (Colin is the one who reminds me of my cousin Brandon by the way!)
The three other pictures where taken on a beautiful day when i was taken into a small town that i can't remember the name of. It was kinda of my day because there was not room in the care the day before for me to go into town so Dan the Man took me and a few friends and i was able to snap some amazing pictures of the country side. I apologize for the blurry picture on the bottom it is the Monistary where I currently live and it is hard to take a picture like that in a moving car but don't worry i will be getting better ones! Oh!!! the picture of the tree and the gate is actually right outside our front doors and it is a legend that that tree is somehow part of the tree that was used to crucify Jesus.
