Paris Sights and Tastes
The last 2 days I hung out with my buddy Mark and we took in the sights of Paris. We started out the first day meeting with a Colleague from Europe, Robin and had a great Lunch at a seafood restaurant near the Tour De Eiffel Le Fontaine De Mars. We started of with a great Mussel Soup it was very delicate, the Entree was Cod Fish Fillet with Spinach. This is a great restaurant and well worth trying. From there we went to the Eiffel Tower and went up to the top on the funicular. I had never been to the top of the Eiffel Tower because the lines had always been too long but today there was only a 5 minute wait. On a clear day this is a must do the opportunities to get great views are tremendous. It was a very damp and cold day so Mark and I made our way yo the Musee D'orsay which I think is the best Art Museum in Paris if you only have 2 hours to explore. At this Art Museum you get more in such a small place. While I was there they had a special exposition on Fashion in the Impressionists paintings. JoAnn would have loved this so I saw a Christmas present opportunity to buy some great gifts. From there Mark and I ended the evening at a Bar where we enjoyed a Glass of wine and a charcuterie.
