Subject: Paris in April--not the usual sights

We thoroughly enjoyed the Musée de Carnavalet which recounts Parisian history. Fabulous interiors from an art nouveau jewelery shop, the Hotel Wendel ballroom, rooms that used to belong to famous writers such as Marcel Proust and Madame de Sévigné. Best of all, it is free! (since Dec. 2001).
