Pere Lachaise pictures

pouikysland was in Paris today. We met up near the Pere Lachaise for a walk there and catch up since the last time we'd met.

Annoyingly, the sun, though hidden by clouds, was behind the grave. Which made it difficult to photograph. Hence the bad contrast and colors.

It could be translated as "Thehollow Brothers". It sounds out of a Terry Pratchett book.

I really want to! I may plan a trip to London for the first time in 2009 because I really want to see Jude in Hamlet. If I save up some more, I'll also include a trip across to Paris. :D

If you cannot save up some more (or enough holidays), I can still hop to London to meet you if you have time :)

I always make time. :) I still haven't found anyone to go with. I still haven't found confirmation dates on when Jude will be performing. But yeah...Love to do London with you. :D

If it wasn't Hamlet I would have volunteered, but somehow I've been traumatized by JM. I don't think I can survive another Shakespeare play, even played by Jude. o_O
But for the rest of the trip, whether it's London or somewhere else, I'm up. Just let me know :)
