We just ordered books about artists of the impressionist era, so I thought it would be neat to take them to see some of the most famous impressionist art in the world- the Musée d’Orsay. We were not disappointed. The boys got a big kick out of the model of the streets of Paris under glass that you can walk on. One of the highlights of our visit was seeing Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night painting. The prints simply do not do justice to the brilliance of colors and uniqueness of the strokes of the original. Of course it’s hard to beat Monet, his La Rue Montorgueil was simply stunning as was Renoir’s Path Leading through Tall Grass and many, many more.
Of course, no trip to Paris would be complete without at least a dozen pictures of the Eiffel Tower.
And crêpes! We got THE best crepes with egg, ham and cheese, and of course some Nutella ones. I have got to get one of these humongous crepe makers (you’d have thought it was my first time to Paris the way I ate on this trip!)
