Mountmartre, Paris France 5/13/09:

Finding a cheeseburger in Paris at 9am has its challenges. Yet, if you are flexible, it can be found. Groovy Dad and a new Cheese burger sumitter, “Happy Guy”, found a version of Parisian “bistek” sandwich that looks l a lot like a grilled Panini. It can be found premade in a cold box which they take out and then press it in a Panini grill to heat it up and melt the lovely cheese. The fact that the Burger is square does not take away from its loveliness. Our goal was in site…..The Cathedral on top of Mountmartre (a hill 130 meters high). With a roller suit case in “Happy Guys” hands, we made it to the funicular for a ride to nearly the top.

The area of Montmartre looks grandly out over all of Paris. The name “Montmartre” comes from “Mont des Martyrs” (the bishop St. Denis, the priest Rustique, and the archdeacon Eleuthère were all decapitated there around the year 250). In the 12th century, Benedictine monks built a monastery near Rue des Abesses. It later became the seat of a powerful abbey. “Cheese burgers” were consumed in the hazy morning air before a walk down from the summit.
