The Last Day in Paris, but Not the Last Word

Thursday Evening:

We return to Sacramento tomorrow, which means we will leave Paris on Friday, and after hours and hours of travel, will arrive home the same day, thanks to the wonder of time zones.

Today we returned to the Musee d'Orsay and hung out there for a good five and a half hours. We found a whole wing of pictures we had missed last Saturday. Today we took pictures of our favorites. We have a print at home of the one displayed here. It was exciting to see the original, needless to say, and revisiting the Musee was great way to finish a wonderful week.

I have yet to blog about our trip to the Louevre on Sunday or our trip to Fontainebleau on Monday. That will just have to wait until we get back, along with numerous observations about aspects of life in Paris.

Suffice it to say that we have had a wonderful time, and I would recommend renting an apartment over a hotel room any time. Our apartment was well-stocked, and the manager, Victoria, was always helpful. I'll post links, etc. on return home.

One other observation is that the book, French Women Don't Get Fat, is quite accurate. For real: French women are consistently thin! It's amazing. I suspect it has something to do with climbing stairs everywhere, but more thoughts on that on another day.

Till then, Au revoir, Paris and Hello, Cezar (our loveable mutt). Sacramento, here we come.
