The line went on for miles, well it felt like miles and it took almost two hours, What were we thinking? Ashema had never seen the Mona Lisa, so a must do. Rick Steve is so smart, show up an hour before opening or just buy the museum pass. SO when I go back to do more art, I will be getting a Pass.
But the best part of going was to see the Mona, mona Lisa that is. The herd of people squishing there way into the front, shoving and pushing. It was like a rock concert for art, flashes going off even though they say no flash, arms in the air, cameras clicking, children on shoulders. The best part is reminder of how grateful I am that I Iove my job and I don’t have job of saying, “the parquet floor is slippery please no children on shoulders”. Over and over to the hordes of tourist.
Paris Highlights include; Walking everywhere, seeing the Eiffel Tower Sparkle,
Spending time with Ashema,
A seven course “Menu of Distinction” at Semilla, 54 rue de Seine, 75006. Great place, no attitude, lovely wait staff, a joy and my big extravagance in Paris. Below, Leek and Chestnut Mousse thing? I am so bad about remembering, my favorite course was black truffles with light hard cheese over celery soup/ foam. Kept forgetting to take photos all too good to not just start eating. And how rude to take photos of 7 courses with your Ipad, Please
Watching this amazing football player on the stairs of Sacré-Cœur, Montmartre having Crepes, The little apartment in Paris, An amazing visit!
