    The picture of the doors my favorite photo of the day! I’m glad there are no food photos. I just ate at Mellow Mushroom 🙁

    You know, you could be writing a guide book for one who has time to spend in Paris. Aha! Book #4! Go for it.

    Or….some of us could just print copies of your writing. I’m too lazy. Create the book. You’ll be better than Fodor’s any day.

    Linda, I had forgotten about this place, and definitely a place I would like to visit when we are there. I also love the picture Jim Bilbro took of you and Bernie earlier. The place I was trying to remember yesterday we thoroughly enjoyed on one of our trips several years ago was the Bagatelle gardens at Bois de Boulogne. So enjoy touring ‘with you and Bernie’ — now double the pleasure adding the Bilbros. Enjoy your time remaining. It does go quickly.

    I am so happy to see that you love The Musée Jacquemart-André as much as I do! I am so glad that you posted this!
    What a life Édouard and Nélie had collecting the wonderful , exquisite works for their mansion. I never cease to be amazed, and I love the tea room as well!

      It is our favorite museum in Paris. There was not a special exhibition yesterday so we didn’t go back through since we’ve been there SO many times. The Bilbros loved it.

    Linda: How would you rate the number/quality/availability of neighborhood parks/greenspaces in Paris? Would you say Parisians enjoy the outdoors(I don’t mean they have to be running a marathon — just being outside), do they avoid it, or something in between. Thanks

      Pat, there are green spaces EVERYWHERE, some tiny and intimate, some huge and majestic. Parisians love the out of doors. They eat outside, picnic along the river, roller blade, jog, and bicycles are everywhere. Plus they walk all the time and thus the level of obesity is not a problem here. You would love it, being a jogger.
