    Those museum pictures are gorgeous! You keep finding new places to take “us” to! I see the heat should leave today. May you enjoy cooler days ahead!

    Hallelujah!

    The art collection looked fantastic. We’re going to Wichita next week and will see the Lalique collection at their art museum. While we’re there, we will think of you and our great trip together, pre-Covid.

    How nice that you were once again able to get together with Bernie’s cousin and his wife. The art pieces are interesting and lovely, many very intricate and ornate. It seems the focus of the trip is air conditioning and who can blame you!

    I am so enjoying your posts. Do you choose summer for most of your stays? We saw the restaurant at Hotel de la marine in March and the decor was awesome. How was the meal?

      The meal was excellent but expensive. They have a very expensive restaurant at night for dinner which we have not tried.

    PTL for rain, however slight. We had a lot yesterday, but alas, facing a full week of horrid heat.
    Amazing artifacts- you represented the exhibit well.

    Linda, I don’t know if I mentioned it, but Rachel is in a hospital in Lyons for testing. She says it’s 95F in her room, which is next to the helipad. She says it’s very active, since there are 1200 doctors based in the hospital, which is a center for rare diseases…

    Glad to see you are hiding from the heat. Let’s all double down on climate warming solutions.

    I am enjoyed seeing Paris again through your eyes and pictures.
    I hope the heat gets better. I have added more shorts to my suitcase!
    I leave on my journey next Thursday the 29th. I have even thought about making a collection of pictures like you do.
    We’ll see how it turns out.
    Can’t wait to share my trip with you after we both return!
    Love to both,
    JILL

    We share you sentiments on the heat. Record breaking temps here too. We probably have more/ better air conditioning though

    Favorite way to start my day reading our blog!

    We were worried when we didn’t have an email waiting when we got up this morning. So glad all is going so well and it is cooling. You are troopers but there are huge rewards, obviously!

    I remember that heat. It’s hard to recover when you can’t get an AC reprieve anywhere. Other than the heat, these look like beautiful memories!

    Buddy and I think you two are wired up to some NASA energy-producing experiment! The exhibit is fabulous!!!
    Keep cool and keep it coming!

    You are giving us an entire list of new restaurants to try in our brief visit to Paris this year! The art collection photos are fascinating. Thanks so much!
