Paris, day 10; Basilique du Sacré-Cœur

First, you gotta get there.  It requires a lot of climbing, no matter how you approach the famous hill.  It was almost a miracle that the Metro was working which got me to the area from my temporary home near Canal Saint Martin.  Great! But, you still gotta climb to get to the church. In the photo below, I am building my courage to begin:

In the picture below, I’ve made it half-way up the stair. I look down to take pleasure in my accomplishment thus far, while I allow my heart to normalize.

But, then I look at what’s left to climb.  Help me!

But then, I mean…come on! It is so worth the hike!  Particularly on this splendid Saturday afternoon in mid-January!
