MerSea Paris!

I must be the worst blogger for stopping in the middle of a story. My school schedule is a little less full, so I will make it my new (school) year’s resolution to update you each Wednesday. Today, of course is exception. I decided that, while spending a few hours in the Philadelphia airport, to do something productive. So, my friends, I write; I finish the story.

Edit: That was before I started school and the work hit me in the face. I’m so terribly sorry to everyone who has been awaiting this post for months. At the moment, I’m in Ireland and will be posting about that very soon, though because of space issues, you may be diverted to a temporary page while I try to figure out this website…

If anyone is a fan of Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code, you may be interested to see this: the church with the rose line, a Gnomon (basically like a sun-dial). The light that used to shine through a pinhole in the window would move the line across the floor and up the obelisk, telling the date.  The Paris Meridian, as it is formally named, has an arrow at the exact day of Easter, based on the equinox.

Our marvelous tour guide, Chris, gave us goodies when we answered questions correctly.

My question: What was the name of the family that owned the big black and red Hotel de Ville

Answer: Salazar. Like…Slytherin. Of course the menacing exterior of a home would be paired with a menacing house of Hogwarts.
