I dinstinctly remember having some of the best crepes in my life on the way to Ste Chapelle. My brother had driven us to one of those innumerable places around the latin quarter for a lunch snack. I remember particularly the silky, zesty orange vanilla sauce that covered the crepes. Heaven! Afterwards, we drove and parked near-by the Notre Dame and then walked over to the Cathedral Sainte-Chapelle. Sainte-Chapelle is lovely, certainly ranking among Paris' must-see attractions. Though not unknown by any means, apparently it doesn't hit the radar screens of many visitors - this was the first time we'd been here and we were the only ones there for quite a while. It is a relatively small chapel, but the stained glass windows are beautiful. We were in the chapel for about half an hour enjoying the views and the sense of space. I suggest anyone coming here to bring a pair of binoculars to give you a close up view of the intricate detail in the stained glass windows.Unfortunately, without a really wide-angle lens the place is basically unphotographable from the inside. I had my back to the wall and couldn't get the whole stained glass experience captured on one shot. I tried, but I failed. I did get a few shots of the magnificent color of the stained glass windows from the inside.
