Paris

Posted by sue on January 7th, 2008

We spent 5 nights in Paris this past week to celebrate the New Year, see the city and to visit friends. Paris is of course a grand, beautiful city, with lots and lots to see. We’d visited once before–just 3 days back in 1998. At that time we hit some of the main tourist attractions, so we didn’t feel the need to do the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre this time.

We did, however, walk around Montmartre to Sacre Coeur:

We also visited the Musee d’Orsay, which houses lots of works by the Impressionist painters (and Pre- and Post Impressionism). The building itself is very cool, because it used to be a train station and hotel.

The best part of the trip was the fact that we were welcomed to Paris by actual Parisians, Lee and Lauren Sullivan, with whom we shared a few lovely meals, including New Year’s Eve. Merci beaucoup!

All in all, we had a lovely time. A couple things did make a appreciate Lisbon a little more, though: Paris is very, very expensive, and this time of year it is cold!

    The Sullivans, of course, how French!
    Where did you stay – how was the food?

  2. Sue Says:

    We stayed near the Gare Saint Lazare, near an amazing number of music and musical instrument stores. The food was good, though we didn’t eat a lot of traditional French food. We ate in Lebanese, Moroccan, and Mexican restaurants.

    the musee d’orsay WAS super cool! paris, in general, is great. jake and i travelled there one rainy rainy march in 2000 and loved that museum. with all the smaller “rooms” it seemed so intimate and personal. from your photo, it looks like most of the statuary isn’t there anymore… too bad. did you see a painting entitled “origin of the world”, by any chance?
