From there we left and took the metro to the Musée Rodin where we saw lots of Rodin's sculptures including The Thinker and The Kiss. Pretty neat. The Kiss is my new favorite work of art and I took lots of pictures. Initially we missed that part of the museum and I asked Mamie where it was right before we went into the exhibit and left, so we both went back individually to see two of his most famous pieces of art, while the other held our place in line for the exhibit.
The Thinker and The Kiss by Rodin
After the museum we were exhausted so we came back to Kim and Scott's and took a nice long nap before going to Musée d'Orsay. It was huge. A lot bigger than I thought it would be, but there were some really great pieces of art there. It's actually an old train station they turned into a museum so there is an awesome clock that I took too many pictures of. We stayed there for probably 2.5 hours and then we wandered out to find something to eat. It was about 9:00pm by the time we reached the restaurant but our croque-monsieur was great. I also got a glass of white wine that tasted pretty good. After dinner we walked home and ended up talking to Kim and her oldest son Danny for a good half-hour about the French/American school system. There is quite a big difference and Danny is getting ready to take his Bac (like an ACT but harder) next year. Kim is trying to decide if it's worth it for him to stay here and be killed by the French system of if he should get him out of it somehow. We decided a mix between the two school systems would make it about right. Day 3 in Paris!
Some crazy things I saw: There are no street lanes here in Paris. They are just wide streets and I guess you just drive on one side or the other. I wouldn't try to drive here!
A guy was balancing about four 2 by 4s standing straight up in the air on his moped. I saw him drive by while we were waiting in line at Sainte Chapelle. I wonder if that is illegal here.....
