This afternoon we started the Pass at the Musee d'Orsay. Many museums don't allow pictures inside, and most of you know my penchant for following the rules, so don't be surprised if there are no pictures of the insides of museums. Orsay is located in the railway station built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition. It's a beautiful building and it had very good exhibits of many impressionist painters, including Monet, Manat, and Renoir. There was also a large Degas exhibit. The following sculptures were outside of the Musee d'Orsay.
After Orsay, we walked to the Rodin Museum. I really enjoyed the sculptures of Rodin. The museum was in an 18th century mansion with beautiful gardens. This museum didn't mind pictures, they just asked that you didn't use a flash.
I best not forget our stop at Pierre Marcolini on the way home. We obtained a small box of macaroons and some orangettes. Mmmmm, the macaroons are yummy. They come in many flavors. They flavors I chose were Lemon tea, Cassis, Pistachio, Chocolate covered Violet, and chocolate. So far Lemon Tea is my favorite. They colorful macaroons are everywhere in Paris and they were easy to resist until we realized how amazing they are. They are soft and a little gooey in the middle and crisp around the outside.
