Sore Feet

Bonjour Everyone

Our bodies are telling us that we have covered an enormous area today. We began by strolling down the Parisian streets to the Musee d'Orsay where Glenn expressed his delight at the magnifique building and art. We then visited the l'Orangerie and were pleased to find only a small line. Next we began a long walk up the Champs Elysees and followed Ian's advice and walked up 284 steps to enjoy the view from the Arc de Triomphe. A visit to the cemetery du Pere Lachaise was next. We paid our regards to Oscar Wilde and were surprised at his graffiti covered grave. To keep Meryl happy we finally tracked down a bus to travel back instead of a peaceful quick metro ride! We finished with the 13th century stained glass of Sainte Chapelle.
