The Montmartre Merry Go Round

Between the 17th of December and the 2nd of January you can ride the old fashioned merry-go-rounds of Paris for free. I love this Parisian Christmas tradition. Anybody who wants to, young or old, can have a go.

We were walking past the manège at the bottom of the Sacré Coeur steps the other evening and decided to have ride. There was quite a queue. Once the barrier went down though, there was a mad rush and everybody managed to fit on.

Seated on my white horse I looked up.

And across.

I started to feel a bit queazy after a few turns, so sat out for the next round and took photos instead. Much better.

Merry Christmas. Weeeeeeeeee...!!!
