Tuesday: Paris

Today we went to the Museum d’Orsay, the French museum with artwork from the 1840s to about 1914. It is housed in an old railway station and is huge. Because of the transportation strike here in Paris, the museum was free today. That meant that lines to get in were very long. It was worth the wait, of course.

After lunch we shopped at Galeries Lafayette, along with it seemed about half of Paris. We walked back to where we are staying, grateful for warm weather our last days here.
