J'adore France - Montmatre and Moulin Rogue

What's not to love about Paris?

Montmatre - on the steps leading to Basilica of the Sacre Couer, a Roman Catholic church

Montmatre is a district in the north of Paris primarily know for the Basilica and as a nightclub district.  It's also known as the artist's district - with a lot of famous artists such as Monet, Picasso and van Gogh having had studios or worked around there.

Artists district - with a lot of artist's selling their paintings and doing portraits on the spot

Dinner before catching Moulin Rogue:

French onion soup

Pate served with bread

Duck L'Orange

And last but not least, cake!! I was stuffed by this point.

Enjoyed Moulin Rogue - especially the can can, but thought they should have stopped before they did all the tacky 'contemporary' songs.
