      1. I read somewhere, that not all modern fire prevention measures were possible there, e.g. they couldn’t get sprinklers in everywhere they would have been needed, because they could not drill the necessary holes so as bot to damage structures and/or works of art etc.

    1. Thanks, R! It was sad to see that aggressive destruction in such a very short time, As mentioned above, it’s surprising that whatever fire protection system was in place, if any, couldn’t contain the spreading flames. A lesson to be learned … M

  1. Man, has everyone been there but me? Everyone seems to be posting photos from their visits.

    I’m thinking this might be a good time to go because the photos would certainly not be “stock”. Then again, I would probably have to use a long zoom as I understand they’re not letting anyone near the place.

    1. Indeed! Don’t be dissuaded, there are plenty of treasures still intact in Paris. You and M like walking, and I know you would find the P900 or it’s next in line, a adequate carry-along! M πŸ™‚
