Le Panthéon

I wrote in my last post of 2015 that it was the best year for me by far and that 2016 would have a lot to live up to. I am determined to make 2016 even better and so I have been keeping a bucket list of things to do for the year. I have been enjoying/cannot wait to cross(ing) off each thing.

2015年の振り返りの更新でも書きましたが、2015年はわたしにとってとてもいい年でした。2016年はそれを超えて、去年以上に色々経験したいと思ってBucket Listを作りました。ひとつづつ消していくのが楽しみです。

The Pantheon has appeared multiple times in previous posts and has been on my bucket list of places to visit since I arrived here. This historic monument is actually a museum and yesterday was the day that I finally went inside.


Originally built to be a church, this monument now houses remains of countless French citizens who impacted France's history.




I really appreciated France's ideals of allowing freedom of thought and expression. The hundreds, or perhaps thousands, or names engraved in the walls of the monument gave a presence much louder than any other artifacts.
