Ever heard of the Les Carriers des Paris? Better known as Paris Catacombs, they are a labryth of tunnels that lie kilometers under Paris. Back in the day they were just quarries, but in 1786 they were used as mass burial sites as cemetries were riddled with diseases. And so, being the morbid people we are, we knew we had to see them.
That was the moment I realised what we were getting into. We paid our entry fee and made our way down, down, down the winding stair case. Reaching the bottom was a total anticlimax, i expected to hit a massive monster mash of bones everywhere. But instead we walked and walked and walked until a doorway which read:
We walked through. AND BAM.
Neatly stacked in ammaculate order were millions upon millions of human bones. Each lined up and looking scarily similar to one another. It was breath-taking in its most depressing form. I generally like how different Sarah and my reactions were.. I was freaked out, but not by the millions of desceased humans lying before me, but the water that dripped onto you whilst you made your way through the tunnels..So gross...And Sarah came out with the classsic line of: 'I'm Hungry' when we were halfway through.
