Wanting to escape the smoke from BC wildfires, Jen and I fled/flew to Europe of a couple of weeks. First stop: Paris. We stayed in a small hotel on Blvd Magenta near the Gard du Nord and walked everywhere. Many museums! – The Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, l’Orangerie, Hotel Biron (Rodin Museum), Cluny Museum, Pompidou Centre, and the Picasso Museum. And churches! – St Sulpice, Notre Dame, St Chapelle, the Pantheon (a secular church?), St Germain des Pres, St-Pierre de Montmartre, Sacre Coeur. Our favourite was St Severin, with organ music. And many other sites and delights!
