Paris, part 2

Today was another short day in Paris. I wanted to visit the things that I will not visit with my sister later, so I started with the Cluny Museum, after a quick (but hella expensive) breakfast that included croissants. I had heard that the Cluny was great because it had some famous tapestries. It was great, but the tapestries weren't even the best part. I really enjoyed the stained glass windows there, as well as the fact that the building itself was ancient, but still in use. I spent longer than expected there, and I decided that I didn't really have enough time to do another museum justice. Plus, I wanted to see a bit of the city. I checked out the Sorbonne area and Luxembourg Gardens, as well as took a walk along the Seine. I got my first glimpse of Notre Dame, but am saving going inside for my sister. Mostly, today got me excited for more- the people relaxing and eating in Luxembourg Gardens make me excited to picnic in the park. Seeing Notre Dame makes me excited to actually get up close and personal with the gargoyles, like in the movie. Seeing the Cluny makes me excited for the Louvre (even though I know they have very different collections.) I walked up a back alley full of interesting food shops and got excited for Rue Cler. Stay tuned for the next adventure in Paris, when I hopefully get to do all this and more.
