Museum de Orsay Van Gogh, Rotin, Monet, Renior were all fantastic. Though the museum is very large, it's all contained within one building, which used to be a train station. It was ornately decorated and became one of Paris' premier museums.
Picasso and Michelangelo...you'll just have to wait till our trip to Rome.
We are figuring out the subway, trains, and busses slowly...very slowly.
Blogs we have read and recommendations have been eat gelato and crepes every chance you get. We have tried to do that, and much to our delight, they have all been wonderful, but it is never enough.
We just had Berthillions gelato. It was better than advertised and memorable. Raspberry was to die for. We met a mother and daughter from NJ while we waited. Now we are chillin in front of Notre Dame cathedral. The bell tower just finished ringing. Soon we are heading back to the apartment, but first stopping to buy a few French treats for folks at home.
Linda's beautiful video in Paris.
If I have learned one overall lesson from our trip to Paris this year it would have to be:
Eat more gelato and crepes in life...enjoy the rapture in the small things.
Tomorrow we are headed home. Au revoir Paris. Je t'aime.
