Spent much of the next day at the Louvre. General themes of love, death and war it seems - but not much of the first really. The Roman statues were very interesting, particularly the use of different stones to create clothing. The Moulin Rouge was excellent. A really good range of acts from the signature topless (mixed) dancing to the 7-baton juggler and the ventriloquist using 4 members of the audience and a dog as his dummies.
Boy its a struggle to get enough sleep on this trip - let alone keeping up with the blog! Looks like the train to Amsterdam on Sunday is our best bet to catch up.
The penalty is that we can never get up early enough to beat the queues at the Musee D'Orsay, and its not even peak season yet. Gave up after 2 or 3 tries - life is too short for long queues, and Anna has already seen the highlights in Canberra(?)
Spent the next day at the Pompidou Centre of modern art. Looks very much like Sandy's interest is sculpture, not painting, and enjoyed a great exhibition by Francois Morellet using neon lights, black lines and timber.
A great evening in Montparnasse district, eating at Japanese shaslick-style meal.
We paid final regards to the Eiffel Tower on our last night.
