How I Met Quasimodo in Paris

This man must have made a killing. Dressed as Quasimodo in front of Cathédrale de Notre-Dame de Paris, many tourists had no qualms digging deep into their pockets to have their photograph taken with him. I’m not sure how long he lasted and whether the Mairie de Paris intervened at some point but he made many people happy.

There were no sightings of Esmeralda on the day. Perhaps she was in her gypsy camp counting the euros.

  1. That’s pretty cute – I’d have taken a photo with him 🙂 They have a lot of characters like this in Hollywood near the walk of fame – this is better though. Still cheesy but at least it’s fitting!

    • Shannon: I’m very much a behind the camera person but I could see you posing with him! 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again 🙂
