Day 7 – Lots of museums!

One of the Water Lily Paintings

 

Well we tried to go to 5 places this morning, but only succeeded in going to 3.  The others were closed for one reason or another, but we did get to see Monet’s water lillies at L’Orangerie.  The photos don’t do them justice.  I’ll need to adjust color when I am home.  You could just sit in the center of one of the two rooms and admire his work for an hour or more. 

Seemingly Inside Out

We chose to venture onto Centre Pompidou after that, just to take pictures of the exterior, and we has nutella crepes on our chilly walk.  YUM. 

the pendulum

Most of our time was spent at the Pantheon, which houses the pendulum which first proved the earth rotates.  In the crypte are tombs of Voltaire, Rouseau, and countless others.
