    I dont know if you dont already know about this but go to http://hnteuropa.free.fr/page32.html which is an amazing graff/ urban exploration page of paris, those dudes somehow get into those tombs and there are all these human bones. unfortuniately for you I am too lazy to find the exact page where they go to that part of paris ( its a huge site) so I will let you guys sort through the awesomeness. Great photography too.

    Everybody Loves a Secret Passage

    There's just something that is fascinating about tunnels, caves and secret passages. Almost every city has some tunnels. Remember the tunnel trains under Chicago? Not nearly as big as the Parisian catacombs, but still pretty cool.

    Houston has some tunnels too, but most of them have been gentrified and commercialized into an air-conditioned passageway from one big downtown building to another. There are many shops, boutiques and restaurants along the tunnels, the downtown white-collar workforce uses them to go shopping on their lunch hour. It's brutally hot and humid here in the summer, and nobody goes out in the sweltering heat unless there is no other choice. Plus, the Richie Rich types hate getting panhandled, and there are a zillion aggressive, pathetic panhandlers on downtown surface-level streets. Building security will not permit anyone into their building who looks shabby or homeless, and all the tunnel entrances are in the sub-basement levels of big buildings, so the college-educated crowd can shop and lunch without being "offended by the prescence of the poor." Grrr.
