For Abbi's last day in France, we decided to visit the catacombs. I have never been, so it was a treat for me too. Apparently, many graves were transferred to certain areas under the city after people started getting sick from the rotting bodies. I think the graveyards were getting too crowded and probably were contaminated the drinking water. Anyway, there are tons of bones under the ground near Montparnesse (an area of Paris). Leave it to the French to be decorative with the bones of their deceased citizens. Abbi touched one and then I had to. It felt like rock.
