πŸŽ™οΈ A stroll through the Paris Sewers

Did you know there’s a sewer museum in Paris?

In case you’re put off by the thought of even stepping foot inside it – don’t worry, I’ve done it for you.

Yes, I teamed up with past guest Amber Minogue (hear her last appearance here) and we went underground to check out the MusΓ©e des Γ©gouts.

And Corey Frye the tour guide ties it all together with a story about the Paris catacombs.

Find Amber’s podcast, Paname, here. Find Corey’s tours, at A French Frye in Paris, here.

Here are some pics from the sewer trip. You can find more info about the museum here.

Oh yes, and Amber was talking about finding a quote from Victor Hugo about the sewers. Here’s a whole chapter from Les Miserables about the sewers.

Here’s one small part I like about when Jean Valjean was in the sewers: “By degrees, we will admit, a certain horror seized upon him. The gloom which enveloped him penetrated his spirit. He walked in an enigma. This aqueduct of the sewer is formidable; it interlaces in a dizzy fashion. It is a melancholy thing to be caught in this Paris of shadows.”
