    I got to see the place twice. An absolutely amazing old building that cannot be recreated.

    Evidently they are against putting stuff out also.

    So sad.....I never got the chance to see it, and now I know I never will. I hear they got a lot of the art out, that’s the only “glass half full” I can think of. I hope there was no loss of life or serious injury, of course.

    The cause of the fire still seems unclear. Can you imagine if some welder working on the renovation started this? You go home and the wife says “so, how was your day?” “Well..........”

    I heard the fire dept took their sweet ass time getting water on the fire. Part of the reason it became a roaring inferno. That, and the fact the entire inside was wood. Considering it's surrounded by water that's odd, but it is the French after all.

    Crazy how impermanent history can be. And makes the structures that do survive for centuries and millennia all the more impressive.
