Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

Another 10km hike today: north east through Belleville to Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, possibly the largest stretch of dog-friendly greenery inside Paris city.

Dynamited from a rubbish dump and quarry during the 19th century, the park has a remarkable variance in elevation that makes it difficult to get a good photographic overview. The heavily graffitied "temple" atop the rocky butte gives a great view over N-NW Paris, including Sacre Coeur.

I think today's walking path looks like Noel Coward, a little more subtle than my Bart.
