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 MusÃ©e 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.
