Next we crossed the Seine to the Louvre to visit the Decorative Arts and Fashion museums.
This was on my "must visit" list because of this fabulous exhibit: Déboutonner La Mode (Unbuttoning fashion)
|900 buttons recently acquired from a private collector|
From there, we walked the length of Jardin des Tuileries to L'Orangerie.
There is a fairly new section of Renoirs as well as the famous Water Lilies.
After a rest at the apartment, we headed a little ways back down the hill for pizza. It was raining pretty hard, so the restaurant was almost empty. The pizza was very good as was the dessert: creme brûlée and tiramisu.
|oh yeah--forgot about that stop at Lauduree...|
Today is a pretty quiet day since it is a holiday here in France (May Day and Labor Day).
