Subject: Musee d'Orsay (was Paris)
Hello Ziners Didi's mention of the Musee d'Orsay reminded me of the meal we had there last spring. We waited in line to have lunch at the top floor/ clock tower restaurant, which was fine, but the wait was longish, the room noisy, the service a bit rushed. As we left the restaurant and resumed our tour of the museum, we saw a lovely uncrowded tea room with white wicker furniture and lots of greenery. I believe I spied potted palms. I wish I had known of this restaurant before we had lunch. I can't wait to go back and try it, because it looked lovely and seemed a peaceful respite. My husband loved the van Goghs, but my favorite paintings at the Orsay were Renoir's City Dance and Country Dance, side by side. I see them in my mind's eye, over and over again. Quite a wonderful experience.

And I know that the Centre Pompidou requires one to love modern art, but if you do, don't miss it. We had a great time there.

Cheers, Debbie
