Time


Last Friday I had the opportunity to go on a guided walk through the Musée d’Orsay. It was fantastic to walk through the newly renovated rooms, some still smelling of fresh paint, and look at some of the most amazing pieces of art in existence. I do not take pictures of art, but I had to pull out my camera at one of the big clock windows. Isn’t it beautiful?

And if you peek through, you get a wonderful view of drizzly Paris and Sacre Cour.

I think these clocks are so beautiful. Living here I’ve noticed that big public clocks are surprisingly rare in Paris. The other clock window now looks over a beautiful Art Deco restaurant. Looking forward to going there with some visitors.

    I think the last time I was in Paris was when I was 5 years old. I remember it was a very cool place. I also remember the Escargot in the shells and french bread to dip it in. I was 5 so it’s not like I could go to clubs or bars yet and enjoy that part of life. Hopefully I get back there soon. I’ve been meaning on a European Vacation for a while now.

    Great Pics

    These are amazing! I’ve been to Paris several times when I was younger, but never seen these beauties, or Pere Lachaise – one of the places I’ve been meaning to go for years and somehow not had the oppertunity.
