I decided to try for the Musée du Louvre again today, with no luck, closed on Tuesday's. Very frustrating! I had brekkie at a pub, yes I said pub, where the waiter called me Madame Blue Eyes, and did that hand kiss thing when I left! Had a good chuckle on my way to the Musée d'Orsay :)
I waited in the queue for the Musée d'Orsay for about an hour, but even though it was busy, I had the best day! To be surrounded by my favourite artists was awe inspiring, I stood in front of one of my favourite Van Gogh's and almost cried I was so happy!!
It was very exhausting fighting all people to see the paintings, I got back to the hotel at about 3pm and thought, I'll just lie for a minute, then I'll jump on a train to see Sacré-Cœur. Well that didn't happen, the next thing I knew it was 8pm!! It was still light outside I went to a cafe just down the road for dinner. The waiter was babbling on in French, and I tried out my limited French with him, he laughed at me and said "I speak English for you."
I will get up early and try for the Louvre again tomorrow...
