Madeleine, France 9 November 2019

There are so many little towns or sections.  Many of them are Marie de something, Marie of some place.  Or, something de Marie, some place of Marie.  There was one town on the subway map that was just Madeleine.  So I visited it.  It was only a couple stops north of Concord, which was on a main line.  When I got there, there is a Cafe de Madeleine.  And across the street was this large temple.  Which is called L'église de la Madeleine or La Madeleine for short.  It is a church that was built for the remembrance of Marie Madeleine or Mary Magdalene in the time of Napoleon.
