Our last couple of days in Paris it rained and rained and rained - so it was a good opportunity to hang around the apartment and sample several bottles of champagne while we talked until 4 in the morning.
We did venture out on our last evening to the area where the moulin Rouge is located in the 9th district about a 20 minute walk from our apartment. Thought about applying for a job but did not want to show up thos french can can girls.
Moulin Rouge built in 1889 is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today, Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. The club's decor still contains much of the romance of turn-of-the-20th-century France.
This area is so lively in the evening with restaurants, bars and brothels. This use to be the area where the artist lived (Montmartre) and they would hire prostitutes to pose nude for their paintings. We enjoyed dinner in one of the cafes while listening to live music and watching all the action on the street - a great way to spend our last night in Paris.
