[summer with the eaters] paris pt.5.3. — sacre couer & dinner

22.07.2010

For those who had watched Amélie (Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain), then they would be familiar with Montmartre, and the famous on-top-of-the-hill domed basilica, Sacré-Cœur.

Sacré-Cœur

I went inside of the church but it was forbidden to take any pictures so I just had a little walk around. I think I only spent less than half an hour inside and then I decided to go outside and have a little walk around the Basilica. 

After meeting Ci Ichay and Koh Nanug again, we then went down (not using the stairs, but with an elevator-like thingy) and walked to the nearest park to have a short rest. 

That evening we had another dinner with Jonathan and Marie. We had a dinner at a restaurant in an artist neighbourhood Montmartre :p

 

I didn’t really remember he name of the restaurant, but it seemed that the owner had Indian descent (his mother was an Indian model/actress) — there were photos of an Indian woman in the 1950s or 1960s and the caption saying that was his mom. 

The walls of the restaurants were filled with quotes from songs or books, and some were even accompanied with autographs from the artists, authors, or other famous people. On the wall right in front of where I sat was a quote from Phoenix, with their autographs.

 

The dinner itself was really nice. Marie’s cousin also joined us for the dinner. After dinner Jonathan, Marie, and her cousin walked with us to the metro station to say goodbye.

Thanks again to Jonathan and Marie for the dinner!
