Lanciere’s post inspired me to drag out my album of photos (yes, children, there was a time when pictures were printed on paper and you kept them in a big book called an “album”) from a trip to France and Germany with Mrs. Ttyymmnn back in 2000. I took a ton of pictures there, and this is but a sample. You could (for a fee, surely, but I don’t remember) climb two-thirds of the way up the south tower, and that’s were I took the gargoyle and other shots, including the now-destroyed spire.
Now I want to look through all the rest of the pictures from that trip. We flew to CDG, then did a few days in Paris before renting a car. We drove north to the Normandy invasion beaches, then east to Strasbourg. Then on to Munich for three days and then flew out of MUC. Fantastic trip.
