Paris Day Seven
After an incredibly picturesque breakfast we took a long early-morning-sunlit walk through the city to the Louvre. I've already shown you some of the art we enjoyed there, but here are a few glimpses of long galleries, enfilades, the crowds peeping at the Mona Lisa, and the Napoleon III historic rooms. Later, after rest time, we took an afternoon walk, across the Bassin de 'Arsenal canal to the Promenade Plantee, a raised garden path (that I believe long ago was a railway track, kind of like the High Line in New York) where you can stroll for blocks and blocks at rooftop level, enjoying the greenery and the surrounding buildings--including a crazy one with huge copies of Michelangelo's Dying Slave all over the outside of itself. Then home in time for supper, and ice cream of course.
