Again, another very cold day here in Paris.¬† Nita and I stopped in a neighborhood patisserie for an eclair and a few chocolates!¬† We snacked on the subway on our way to the Arc de Triumph.¬† I wanted to go up inside to get a panoramic view of the city but they had already closed for lunch.¬† I was not interested in staying so we moved on to the Musee D’Orsey to see the most wonderful collection of impressionist art.¬† After a wonderful visit there we went to a lovely bar for something warm.

Another interesting site I saw yesterday was the Grande Arche which is located in Puteaux, on the western edge of Paris.  It is a new area with modern buildings and this very modern arch. You can actually stand in front of it and look thru and down to the Arc de Triumph! Construction began in 1982 and was finished in 1990!IMG_7558IMG_7559
