Day 69: Église du Sacré-Cœur

Cité U is my new home in Paris. A campus with numerous buildings to house students and researchers alike, I guess you can say I am now experiencing a delayed “student life”. I’ve been fortunate I’ve always live in houses, sharing with cousins and/or friends, regardless when I was either an undergrad or a postgrad. Funny now that I have a job, I find myself in a campus environment instead. While the laundrette may be communal, I do have my own studio apartment equipped with kitchen and en suite bathroom. Little mercies of life ;)

The campus is vast, and I dropped by Maison Internationale (i.e. the main reception building) earlier today for a bank appointment (yes, in France, you need an appointment to see someone to open a bank account). Looking out the glass door to the back, I spotted the Church of Sacré-Cœur, which is not to be confused with the famous Basilica of Sacré-Cœur on the hill of Montmartre. Quite a pretty little thing, don’t you agree? I must trek over to have a visit sometimes.

    It’s easier not to get confused once you know that this Eglise is actually in Gentilly, not Paris ;)
    Though I’ve always known this church to be called “Notre Dame de l’Autoroute” (which is what my mom calls it) because it’s very visible from the high-speed road that goes through that area. Sure sign you’re almost back in Paris when driving back from hols ;)

      lol, “notre dame de l’autoroute”, that’s a good one. yes, it’s in gentilly but from cite u, it looks as if it’s an extension of the campus, rather than outside the periph ;)
