The Musée D'Orsay

Visiting the museums here is a challenge because I have ripped knees,
so I can walk, but not stand for any length of time, without pain.  Today.
because of the rain, late in the day the line clipped along, we got in, and took
the elevator to the fifth floor to see our favourites.

Some were gone, maybe in other exhibitions in preparation for the Olympics. 
We don't know.  But that meant that there were paintings there that we'd never
seen before.

How exciting.  I'll share some.
