July in France

Paris Day 16

6:03 PM

After class, another lovely lunch on the terrrace...

We headed to the Musee D'Orsay; it's the late closing night. Fewer people today and the guard escorted us into a different entrance due to my (delicate) condition. I also got a free ticket because I'm a prof. There were a lot of sculptures and it's very airy.
I enjoyed seeing the art deco furniture... and my old friends Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet and how can I forget my provencal buddy, Cezanne. We didn't stay until closing time because we have other plans!
We both had a dinner of quiche lorraine and tarte aux fraises at the same cafe we lunched at the previous day, and then we walked about twenty feet and entered la Comedie Francaise to see a performance of Cyrano de Bergerac!

It was fantastic! I saw Cyrano on broadway in high school... this surpassed it by light years. The only comparision is to seeing the Opera in Manhattan... only we had even better seats than we did when were members at the Met.

The show ended around 11:30pm so we had to book it home; luckily we made it before the metro shut down for the night... whew!
