Last day in Paris

Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Paris, Île-de-France, France
Today we took it easy with a visit to Musee D'Orsay to see what is known as the best museum in Paris. This is the museum housed in an incredible 19th century train station and contains the French impressionist masters, Renoir, Matisse, Degas, Manet, Seurat, and Cezenne as well as Van Gogh and Lautrec.

After the museum we did more walking and then had dinner at a small bistro in the left bank . They specialized in fois gras and duck and it was amazing. We met an interesting couple from Berkley and had some good laughs. After dinner we took a cab back to the hotel with a driver who had the personality to host "Cash Cab". He insisted on us speaking French which we were able to do probably due to the wine we had with dinner. We laughed and struggled all the way back to the hotel and promised we would return to Paris next year to improve our French.
