Our Perfect Paris Day
What can I say? I’m a Southern gal from Alabama and nothing suits me better in Paris than warm temps, blue skies, and sunshine! That’s what we had yesterday in one of our best weather days since arriving. The city is adjusting to the flood and life goes on amazingly well.
Our guests are here for the week, but our friend Jan is still under the weather, so we have been hanging out with Tony. Yesterday, we went to the Rodin Musuem along with a crowd of other people! We concluded that the surge of folks creating a very long line was partly because the Louvre and the d’Orsay are still closed.
Hope you enjoy these photos. Our assessment was twofold: it’s a beautiful place and Rodin was remarkably prolific.
Our evening was spectacular. We shared in an earlier blog post that the Musée de L’Homme had reopened along with the Café de L’Homme. We had dinner there last night under a beautiful sky, the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop, delicious food, a rainbow, and even a string quartet playing just beneath us.
Just to report that of our list of 24 new things to see and do in Paris, we have done 4 so far! Better get with it. Here’s the latest café chairs.
Have a great day,
L & B

I am really enjoying your blog. I will be in Paris in July. I think I must go to the Rodin Museum.

I’m so glad you are enjoying our commentary. I don’t recognize your email. Are you in Huntsville?

Tony had too many clothes on for a Rodin statue. Jim Link

Yes, I’ll tell him he was slightly overdressed for the occasion!

What a wonderful change for you! The Rodin garden is right up there with the Musée d’Orsay as a favorite. Beautiful sculpture and beautiful gardens. Glad you had the opportunity to enjoy them.

Our kids are going to Paris soon and haven’t been able to get tickets to go up the Tour Eiffel. Do you know any tricks to getting last minute tickets?

Try the web site http://www.viator.com. Good luck. Should be able to order them there on-line.

Do you remember how we thought Lee would NEVER get through the Rodin museum? Until that trip, I don’t think I’d ever heard him mention it!
I’m glad you’ve got sunshine. Seems like we’re due a few days getting summerier and summerier and then rain next week. More days of sunshine for you!

I don’t remember that!
