Salvador Dali

In the end, we decided to go to the Dali museum at Monmatre. Monmatre is a really beautiful part of paris with its cobled streets and winding roads that lead up the hill. We took the fernicula as we had travel passes and wandered around to the museam. It’t not really a huge museum, but there was some interesting pieces of his, a lot of the ones with melting clocks and the like. He was an excentric kind of guy and loved to play with ideas of how we percieve time and space. We spend the rest of the day wandering around and we wandered down the Champs Elysees looking in all the shop windows (or window licking as they say in french).

Welcome to Paris

We arrived in Paris nearly a week ago. Time is flying now. Paris is beautiful as usual. And I must admit that it feels good to be here after Lebanon. The weather is much more tolerable here. Lovely cool evenings with nice sunny days.

Last night I went for a bike ride with Patrick and his friend (who were jogging). We went along all these paths which follow little streams and rivers around Le Vesinet. It was really quite beautiful, with the dim light of the street lights reflecting off the water.

Were off to the Louvre today. I’m going to try to do an in depth tour of a small section rather than try and see everything in one hit, I’ll let you know how I go…..
