Notre Dame

It's our last morning in Paris and we planned to go to Sunday services at Notre Dame. This cathedral has to be seen to be believed. How did they build structures like this 800 years ago? Notre Dame took 171 years to complete!!!

The cathedral was filled and we had front row seats - quite a Sunday service. This particular mass was with Gregorian Chant, so the mass consisted on French, Latin, and Greek - and we were confused before.

St. Mary's Cathedral in Covington, Kentucky - we I photograph weddings occasionally, is actually a smaller replica of the famous French version. Check the link to see the similarities.

Again - a great experience!
