Paris People... Come On Down!

The funniest little house you ever did see. Not quite on a prairie, but on a curious grassy mound not apparently serving much purpose at all.

Unless you peer through the iron grill and notice the set of stone steps leading down down, way down into the bowels of the earth. Hmm, spooky, don't you think?

I thought for a long time that this was a not so subtle entrance into the underground tunnels of the city, and because of its proximity to Denfert Rochereau, why not into the Catacombes themselves?

This was wrong, I discovered a while ago, when I found an identical structure on the other side of the railway tracks but in a telling axis and this second find offered a far easier solution to the mystery.

But you know what? I'll let you wonder about what it could be. If you've been following my Paris Photo Quiz series on Facebook here, you'll probably know what it's for already. If now, well, you only have to ask, or guess if you are the fun-loving type! The cats are not an original feature, by the way. See you down in Paris?
