Yesterday we spent time at the Pompidou Centre and then just wandering around the streets of Paris.
Pompidou is another art gallery but this time full of modern art. It is an amazing space with escalators and all the pipes for electricity, air conditioning etc on the outside of the building. Some of the art was interesting and some of it was challenging but it was good to visit as I had never been to this Centre before.
After our visit there we wandered around, had lunch in a cafe, found an amazing fountain and then walked along Rue de Rivoli which has lots of shops to check out.
Finally staggered home about 6.30 pm after stopping for coffee in the early afternoon and a drink later on at little cafes where we sat looking out onto the streets pretending we did this kind of thing every day.
Later headed off for dinner at an interesting little restaurant about 10 minutes walk away. Most interesting food so far although still heaps of tourists everywhere. I am not sure where the local Parisians go to avoid them.
Have added some more photos of around Paris and some for the foodies.
We intend to continue wandering the streets and only have a couple more galleries to visit while we are here.
