    I learn every day :-) Interesting origin of Montparnasse :-) And I like to be sent back to Greek mythology, something I loved at school :-)

    I never knew that Montparnasse in Paris was named after Oρος Παρνασoς in Greece, or rather after a heap of rubble around 1725.

    Now I know how the Mount Parnassos looks like near Arachova because it was covered by clouds when I stood just at the same place where you have taken your pics.
