While sitting on the Pont des Arts (see below) a Maria procession passed under us. A little later, as we walked along the Siene towards the Notre dame, the procession floated by. 13 boats with pilgrims, a blue lighted Maria statue in artificial smoke, singing pilgrims, and loud prayers by the Bishop of Paris. And the brightly lit Notre Dame in the background (it was late evening). Quite surrealistic.
15 Augustus s' avonds: een Mariaprocessie op de Seine, net toen we voorbij de Notre dame wandelden.
