6 Days in Paris

So we spent six wonderful days in Paris, mostly just walking around, stopping to have a café or sip on some wine and watch other people strolling around.We did manage to do a few cultural things, notably a visit to the Musèe d'Orsay which had a special exhibit on masques throughout the ages, as well as the stunning regular collection of impressionists.

I was enchanted with this Degas in particular.

It looked like hard and hot work.

I spent sometime in front of this one as well and reaffirmed my desire to go to Amsterdam to the Van Gogh Museum.

There was this lovely and famous Manet to ponder.

If this whet your appetite, t
he website for the Musèe d'Orsay is fantastic, with background and excellent pictures on almost all of the paintings in the collection.
