 This is regular winter sky.  It is miserable - especially after 4 months non-stop.  We have to entertain ourselves through travel. 
A short hop, skip and a jump from Paris is Amiens

Amiens also calls itself the "Venice of the North".  Watch out for places that call themselves "Venice" if they are not Venice. 
I love cemetaries - creepy but true
They are quiet like parks and full of beautiful hommages to people

The Amiens Cathedral
Built in the 13th century, it is the LARGEST in France.
(notice extra mini-boy on scooter, bottom left)

The sun came out for our last 3 hours and we went up to the ramparts
 passing the enormous rose window on the way up.  
The cathedral deserves a post of it's own.
