Paris, Day 6

The real joy to me of having been to Paris so recently is that I've already seen so much and I don't feel the pressure to see it all again. Now I can continue to spend my days walking around this beautiful city.

Today I've been back to the Musee D'Orsay.  I didn't have quite as much time as I would have liked, since I had another meeting.  But I made time to see my favorites.  The Van Goghs and the Impressionists.   I'm having a bit of difficulty fighting the crowds.  As you all know, normally I try to travel in the off seasons so I'm not faced with more tourists than I can handle, sadly that has not been the case this summer.  I will however, carry on.  

As you can see, the weather has been a bit gloomy today, but I love it.  The breeze is cool and Paris is still stunning in the gloom.

Having finished my meeting, I'm enjoying a well deserved glass of vin blanc at Cafe de Flore around the corner from my apartment.  It's one of two cafes famous for being frequented by people like Hemingway.  I think I'll sit here a bit longer and maybe pick up some inspiration.
