Under Paris

A couple of weekends ago, I had a visitor from America, the writer and blogger Joe Milutis who writes the New Jersey as an Impossible Object blog. It was great to meet someone with whom I have only previously communicated through the ether of the blogosphere. Incidentally, Joe has written a book called Ether: The Nothing That Connects Everything which he told me all about. It sounds fascinating.

I thought it would be good to do something unusual when we met up, so I arranged a trip into the Catacombs. That's Joe standing by the memorial to Philibert, the only person to have died after getting lost in the Catacombs. Joe has done a good job of describing the visit on his blog, and he even has a short video of an impromptu poetry reading underground. Enjoy.
