Here is Judi coming out of the bakery with her goodies for supper in the garden. I am paying for mine at the cashier at the door. We usually bought a quiche, a sandwich, a salad or a piece of pizza when we were dining at "home". ")

How tiny she seems in this vast room! Also, the protective glass around her seems to add to her diminutive state. I always think of this painting as very large.....even though I have read how small it is (30in X 21in) compared to so many portraits of this era. But there she is in all her beauty..............and it was very difficult to get to the front of the crowd to get a phto without dozens of heads in my view finder. ")
Here you see the glass pyramid constructed by the famous I.M. Pei. It is so beautiful with the sunlight shining through it. We did not get to see it all lit up at night, but everyone said it truly is a beautiful piece of art when seen at night.
I don't know why these photos posted out of order........oh, well, this is the Gate of the Lions entrance into the Louvre Museum. The Lion are quite regal.
This man was set up at the end of the bridge that crosses over just up from the Orsay Museum. He had quite a "band" at his disposable....and he sang! He was really good with all the instruments and had a really nice voice. Notice the top hat sitting in front of him for tips. ")
