Walked to Bastille discovered big, big sunday market is there lovely struggled to fine promenade plante and did it is by the new opera house and probalby lovely on a sunnier day it inspired the high line in NY walked to left bank and embarked upon our version of Rick Steves' left bank tour---saw Delacroix museum and two lovely churches the old St. Germain des Pres where a new baby was being baptized and the enormous St Sulpice Many lovely upscale shops and galleries As my husband said "it is like Santa Fe but with rain."Went to Gare d'Orsay enjoyed special exhibit on fashion and impressionism and the whole place more than I ever had before!! Took metro to Abbesses a cute walk around neighborhood more developed than Canal St. Martin and of course a jumping off pt. for Montmartre and Sacre Coeur (church).That staion has well preserved art nouveau features and also the steepest winding stairs of any metro station I've seen yet.
