Nigel in Paris: climbing Montmartre

Montmartre is a challenging neighborhood for a little pig with little legs: it’s very hilly! It’s home to those iconically Parisian stairs, on Rue Foyatier:


Nigel decides he wants to try climbing them:


(Somehow, I accidentally turned on a filter on my iPhone, and didn’t realize it till later. Ooops!)


The stairs of Sacre Coeur — which are nearby — are just as steep. But the climb is worth it for the nice view of the city you get from the top. And for Sacre Coeur itself:


(The basilica itself is not particularly interesting inside, and anyway, photos aren’t allowed. Not that that stops some rude people from taking them anyway.)

Nigel wanted to go inside, but I told him pigs aren’t allowed. In fact, it appears that whatever is going on at the Moulin Rouge these days looks more Vegas than anything else. I suspect he would have been disappointed.
