take in the Musee D'Orsay. This is an old train station that was
scheduled to be torn down. According to Rick Steves, the French
decided that it would be a good place to house the 19th centure art
scattered throughout the city. The collection is enormous and
wonderful. I like this picture. I think it would make a good
Christmas card. It's "La Vierge au rouge gorge"
by Ernest Herbert
James Abbot McNeill Whistler
"Bal du Moulinde la Galette" by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
by Claude Monet. Rue Montorgueil is the market street in this
neighborhood. There are cheese shops, butchers, fruit market,
vegetable, market, wine stores and several boulangerie-
patisseries, cafes and one supermarche.
I only saw the ground floor, the mezzanine and the 5th floor.
I missed the 3rd and 4th floors. I guess I'll just have to come
back to Paris to see them.
