Tosca here with a brief update of our day. Bob and I visited the Musee D'Orsay which is where you see more modern paintings. The highlights were the works of Vincent Van Gogh especially his self portrait, Edouard Manet and his city life scenes and the most beautiful in my opinion was the Little Ballerina done by Edgar Degas in bronze but with a satin ribbon in her hair, a tulle skirt and a canvas jacket with tiny buttons. I could not stop staring at her. She is so beautiful. I have seen my own Kelsey standing in such a pose many times.
After the museum Bob and I headed over to the Four Seasons George V where Lady Diana had her final stay. What a stunning hotel. What a stunning waste of life. It was eerie to think of her there in that place in her final hours. Little did she know.
Bob and I strolled down the street towards Rue de la Montagne where there was sunshine, lovely shops, beautiful flowers and generally just a lot of nice things. Before long we took a taxi to Sacre Coueur the oldest cathedral in Paris. Of course the place was mobbed but we got the feeling of how special this church is.
Weird to think our next visit was le Moulin Rouge located in the Clichy district which is Paris' version of the Red Light District in Amsterdam. We took a little train through Montmartre and now we are back in the hotel for a rest before dinner with Kelsey.
Thanks for keeping things tight for me while I am out gallivanting.
I would love to hear your special words about Paris. Please share.
