Paris, Day 3  
At this rate, I will be reporting on this trip until the End Of Days. Annnyway, here's some more.

We took a Seine tour for the first part of our morning.

Anarchy cherub on the Ponte Alexandre III

We actually saw the famous ring scam being performed on some unwitting tourists right before our very eyes. It was awesome!

Then it was back on the bus tour for exploration of the Left Bank.

Le Jardins Du Luxembourg. Unfortunately, this was the most we saw of it. We then tried to go to the Catacombs but they were closed. Also they don't make it easy to find the entrance. Which is kind of neat and adds to the intrigue.

We made our way back to the Opera Garnier for our tickets to see the Homage a Jerome Robbins.

It was better than I imagined it. And yes, I've imagined it quite a bit.

I was just wandering around sort of in a dream-like state.

The Grand Foyer. Like a golden jewel box.

This was the view of the stage from our box.

"She is singing tonight to bring the chandelier down!"

The look of finally making it to one's personal mecca.

The ballet was absolutely stunning. The dancers were all just breathtaking and the pieces were all really interesting. The stage is absolutely enormous. I could have stayed in that box forever.

"Oh, to-night I gave you my soul and I am dead!" Christine replied.

"Your soul is a beautiful thing, child," replied the grave man's voice,
"and I thank you. No emperor ever received so fair a gift.
THE ANGELS WEPT TONIGHT."
