We had a really nice evening at dinner last night. Michel selected a place called Les Ombres (the shadows) on the roof of the Musee de Quai Branley in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. We ate a very nice meal and every hour on the hour, the tower twinkled at us. The video will explain what I mean. It was a very magical evening.
This morning we headed to the D’Orsay museum and spent the entire morning there. There are no pictures allowed in the museum, but I took a couple shots from the terrace and overlooking the museum from an upper floor. The museum is a converted train station which adds to its interest. Here are a few pictures from inside the Museum.
This next shot is a view of the gigantic clock face looking out from the inside. If you look closely you can see Montmartre in the background. I thought that was a cool picture.
From the terrace I took a couple more shots of the town. This is another shot of Montmartre and another building which I am not sure what it is.
We leave Paris tomorrow after breakfast. We will be heading to Tours on our continued tour of France.
