Street Soccer in Sacre Coeur
There is no doubt that the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre, Paris, France is one of the first must-see parts of Paris. But what makes it even more memorable are the incredible and unsuspecting street performers which shuffle in at various hours of the day performing incredible stunts.
Tourists and locals cover the steps leading up to the beautiful white Basilique to chat, drink, eat or just absorb the breathtaking view of Paris on this hilltop.
The man in the photo was a street performer who did unbelievable stunts every hour with a soccer ball, the grand finale climbing a 30-foot lamp post to the top while kicking the ball up with him.
It was a beautiful view actually, with the early sunset across Paris as the backdrop to his performance. I have never seen anything like it before. He deserved that standing ovation.
