Now this was a day that we actually expected when we planned our packing for France in the Fall. Cool and clear in the morning and rain in the evening. No longer did we wish for our t-shirts and shorts that we had left at home.
We left after breakfast jumped on the Metro and headed off to the Musee D Orse, a museum full of impressionist art. Libby was in her glory; Renoir, Van Gogh, Degas, Monet, Rodin etc. The museum was a huge old train station and though busy, it was large enough that you could take time to enjoy. We were not allowed to take photos of the painting but it was an outstanding place to visit.
It was about lunch time and we stopped at a restaurant and had a wonderful Italian lunch. The picture says it all as we sat outside to watch Paris flow by.
The downtown area of Paris was a zoo! Literally 1000’s of people eating in the parks, squares and everywhere; One thing we did notice is NO ONE eats in the underground. Not allowed ever.
