Yesterday, as we strolled down the famous Champs Elysse I found myself craving something to drink and maybe a snack.

Cynthia was somewhat befuddled about the fact that I was tickled to find a McDonald’s so I could spend 3 Euros to purchase a Royal with Cheese and a coke.

Today we did not go to the Louvre, instead we braved the Paris Metro and went to the Musée d’Orsay to walk among the best collection of impressionist art ever assembled. Monet, Latrec, Degas and many others including some more Van Gogh.

After that we walked over to Samaritain, a huge depatment store with a cafe on the roof that offers a spectacular view of Paris.

From there we went to the Cluny Museum, the home of the Unicorn Tapestries. It is an amazing museum of Medieval art and history.

From there it was back to the hotel and then out to the open air market for cheese, meats and breads so to make a little dinner.

We shoot for the Louvre tomorrow. Sunday night we take the sleeper train to Venice.

    So, what DO they call a whopper over there?

    Man I HATED the Champs Elysee. I found it pretty gross. Orsay was one of my absolute favorite experiences of Paris, though. Some of those Monets were GIGANTIC, weren’t they? The floors were so white, I just loved it.

    You know you can get a beer at the movies? And I ain’t talkin’ bout no paper cup, either, I’m talkin’ about a _glass_ of beer.

    Lovin’ the updates, yo! Looks like you’re having fun.
