The website got a makeover, a new domain name--and the Les Mis Tour Guide. For realz, yo. Pictures of all the real places Hugo kept nattering on about.

(--oh, fine, and naked Frenchboys. Here.)

Haha, I was *just* referencing your site for a one-shot, Orestes. The maps part, though.

Should I ever actually make it to Paris, I fully plan on weirding out whoever is with me and using your guide as my touring bible.

And I love the thread titles that you use to announce your updates.

I feel obligated to mention that I just did a MASSIVE update to the tour guide, and more will probably follow soon.

http://www.chanvrerie.net/tourguide/index.html

Things I've added:
- Pictures of Père Lachaise, where Valjean was buried
- Pictures of Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas, where Valjean took Cosette to church
- A picture of the former Rue de l'Ouest, where Marius through many stalkery activities found where Cosette lived
- Lots of info on the Field of the Lark and the Faubourg Saint-Marcel

Things I've added additional pictures of:
- The place where Javert jumped into the Seine
- Montfermeil, including the area where the Thénardiers' inn might've been
- Place Edmond Rostand (where the Café Musain would've been)
- Rue Oudinot (formerly Rue Plumet)
- Church of St-Paul-St-Louis (Marius & Cosette's wedding)
- The approximate location of the Gorbeau tenement
- The Field of the Lark
- Rue de l'Homme-Armé (including the building where Valjean's apartment would've been)
- The former location of the prison of La Force (from which Thénardier escaped)

Coming soon:
- Actual pages with info on Père Lachaise, Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas, and the Rue de l'Ouest
- Photos and a page on Saint-Sulpice, where Marius came as a child and his father sometimes watched him in secret

In the nebulous and distant future:
- Digne. Seriously. Keeping mum on the details until I know for certain I can go, but this is a possibility.
- More on Montreuil-sur-Mer.
- A reconstruction of the Javert-Valjean chase from the Gorbeau tenement across the Pont d'Austerlitz.
- A few shoutouts to the musical, like the Rue de la Villette.
