Hi! I'm Mary Rose, an 18 year old blogger with one foot in the Goth subculture and the other in a time machine.

Everyone is dressing up and taking pictures for World Goth Day but it’s 90 degrees in my house right now and I’m melting and not in a state to look cute.
Notre-Dame de Rouen

Friday, I left Paris for un petit sejour in Rouen, Normandie, which seems to be where old French people go to be tourists. This cathedral, a frequent subject of Monet’s paintings, was severely damaged during WWII, along with many other buildings in the town such as the Palais de Justice and l’Abbaye Saint-Ouen. It has been mostly restored, but, as is evident from the picture, is still undergoing restoration. I found it to be more beautiful than Notre-Dame de Paris, and especially so the central tower, Tour Saint-Romain, which is composed of an incredible amount of thinly carved layers which make it appear to be made of lace.
