Today was all about famous paintings



Our original plan was to go to Versailles today be we nixed that idea to, instead, go back to the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay. It was a hard decision but we really felt like we needed to take in more of the museum Mecca. We had a guide book with us that had a tour of the super famous works and I am so glad we had this. We missed so much the first day because we wandered around. It was nice to have more focus today. I saw Venus de Milo! Among a whole bunch of other famous things. I am stoked.

I mentioned that we also visited the Musée d’Orsay. we wanted to find a Manet painting, (Olympia) we missed yesterday (found it!). We looked for the photography collection but never found it.

Finally, with very tired feet, we trekked over to Champs-Élysées and snapped a photo of The Arc de Triomphe. I think I could’ve lived my life without visiting this street. Not really my thing. There were people standing in line to shop at Abercrombie and Fitch. I so did not get it. At all.

Tomorrow we go home and I am sad. I had the best time.
