French Mademoiselle in Paris: Day 11


This morning we lined up to enter Musée d'Orsay.
For me, the second visit this Paris trip.
What can I say? It's my favorite museum in the world :)

Musée d'Orsay

After d'Orsay, we ate a Croque Monsieur and walked through the 7th arrondissement.

Then we took the metro to the 16th arrondissement.

We walked through the lovely Jardin du Ranelagh where adults were bicycling and
children were playing in their Burberry clothes.

You might wonder "why travel all the way to this part of Paris?"
Because of Musée Marmottan Monet.
This hidden gem has over 300 paintings of Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, with the
largest collection of Claude Monet in the world, such as this one:

Claude Monet - Soleil Levant

We went back to the 2nd arrondissement and revisited Deliziefollie near Les Halles and
ate a salted caramel gelato.


It's weird how ice cream makes you thirsty.
Well, we found the perfect solution: cocktails at happy hour!

This was my mother's last day in Paris.
Tuesday my brother will be joining me.
If any of you have any tips on where to dine, shop or sit, they'd be more than welcome!

Au revoir,

Bonjour Danielle,
Again you have had a wonderful Paris packed day. I will get out my thinking cap about where to eat. I would suggest taking a little bottle of something and sitting down at "the beach" just beside the seine bellow Pont des Arts. it's a beautiful way to see the sun set.
