    What a wonderful post! The musée looks beautiful inside and out and your writing and photos really bring it to life. Have to smile over ‘rogue’ photos 🙂

    Those travel delays are never fun — glad you made it to your lovely destination. And yay Bernie likes Roquefort!

    Enjoy that special family time as I’m sure you are. So bittersweet when loved ones are not well. All best wishes x

        Oh merci, Linda – must be reflecting your lovely writing 🙂

        Wish we could get together again before you leave but looks unlikely. My Aussie stepson has a surprise business trip to London and is visiting us next week. I know you’ll enjoy your remaining time in our beloved Paris and maybe we can lure you over sometime around the holidays!

    What a lovely museum! Glad you didn’t get thrown out over the “rogue” photos (ha). Really enjoyed this post. Fun times with family are the best!

    The museum was fascinating! Reminder of days gone by in the printing of newspapers “, back in the day”. Enjoy your family time, it is precious.

    I remember the visit to Bernie’s family last year. Like last year, they seem to sincerely enjoy having you come by and they put some effort into seeing that you enjoy your stay. The pictures of the machinery and printed explanations explained the process well – very interesting. If you don’t quit taking pictures of forbidden subjects – the upstairs today and the little girl on the subway the other day, we are going to have to all pitch in to bail you out of jail.

    Really neat – would love to see that museum in person some day! Oh that garlic…do you eat it whole?! I do love garlic 🙂

      Nat, the wallpaper was amazing at the museum. So tempting to want to take pictures. And yes, we eat the garlic whole. It doesn’t taste as strong prepared this way.
