Musee d'Orsay et Bateau Mouche

Two fun things this past week: a visit to Musee d'Orsay and a boat ride down the Seine! The museum was really interesting and we had free reign to visit any exhibits we wanted. I spent some time in the Renoir and Toulouse- Lautrec rooms and took some great pictures! You can check them out on the flickr link!

Later that day went went for a boat ride past all the major monuments which line the Seine. From Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower and from the Parisian Statue of Liberty to the Louvre, it was some serious sight-seeing! Also, this time of year "Paris Plage" opens which is Paris's version of a beach along the Seine! They put out a bunch of sand, some chairs and everyone lays around tanning (some with clothes, some without) all day. We have yet to visit Paris Plage, but took some pictures as we floated by. 

This weekend is the excursion to the Loire Valley! We will be touring some chateaus and going to a "degustation" or wine tasting. As I am running out of space in my flickr account, I will be posting more pictures on the blog itself. Check in Monday for some new updates! :-) Bon Weekend!
