We started our day at the most famous art museum in the world...The LOUVRE to compare the Classical painters of the 19th century with the precursors to Impressionism then we walked through the Tuileries Garden to Musée de l'Orangerîe where a collection of Impressionists paintings are housed. Next, we crossed the river to the Musée d'Orsay; here, the world’s finest collection of Impressionism as well as important precursors such as Courbet and Millet are displayed.
After a very wonderful but tiring day, we ended in the perfect, peaceful spot, sitting on the lawn in a park, eating a baguette, under the Eiffel Tower.
We have been greeted with warmth and hospitality from the people here at every stop we make, so today's words are all about manners and we have heard them everywhere we go.
