Paris

I was amazed how much the train wiggled and jiggled until I was reminded that it was traveling at over 100 mph. By morning I was awake early (sunrise) and watching the countryside pass by in front of me. It all looked very different from the Italian countryside, tidier and more prosperous.

View to the right out of our hotel window of Notre Dame and the Seine; can't get too much closer than that!
View to the left out of our hotel window of the Seine.
Directly across the street from the Police Station! Watching the traffic was hypnotic.
Close up of the room shows statues of empty armor...very strange. We never did figure that one out.
Musee D'Orsay interior. Seeing the Degas pastels was wonderful (I cried again). The impressionists were wonderful and the special treat of Seurat!
I didn't want to take photos of the paintings, but thought that shooting Paris through this clock facing outwards at the Musee D'Orsay was fun.

We did have one of our memorable meals in Paris, crepes with smoked salmon and fresh cream. YUM!

Wood pigeon (Columba palumbus) at Notre Dame.
Then it rained...
And then it rained harder...Paris in the springtime
Just take the Metro to Gare du Nord to catch train to Amsterdam - all you have to do is figure how to get OUT of the Metro, then everything else is easy.
