If you liked the Bastille, you'll love…

… the other great prisons of the French Revolution, about which I posted today on History Hoydens. It does seem unfair that the Bastille gets all the attention, when there are so many lovely dungeons to be had.

    Wow…Prison des Carmes…and Josephine? I really need to re-read up on the Bonapartes.

    So, which prison would you have used for Richard?

    Hmm…I seem to have missed these on my many tours of Paris. For the next group of students I might take someday, I’ll have to consult you!

    (it might be punishments for asking to stop at McDonalds and/or Starbucks in Paris…both of which, in my book, are worse than espionage or any other pesky crime)
