Last day in Paris and we had to decide what to cover, and what we would miss on this trip. We had not been to Le Marais, and the shops there are open on Sundays, so....
We took the Metro to the Bastille - or the area where it once was. There is a statue dedicated to liberty (with lots of gold leaf, of course). We then walked the neighbourhood looking for the Carnavalet Museum as it focuses on Paris' history. It took a bit of finding, but we got there and roared through it as Bennett needed to leave to meet his ride-share back to Maastricht.
Peter and I had lunch at a crepe place and had a beer and a rest from all the walking. Revived, we returned to our starting point and walked all the shopping streets of Le Marais and the Jewish Quarter. So many pretty streets, gorgeous architecture and neat shops. Of course we took in St. Paul St. Louis cathedral. There's a huge, very old church on every corner in Paris, so they hardly bear notice at this stage.
We wound up at the Pompidou Centre which focuses on modern art. I'd love to go there next trip, but I could not face another museum today. We decided to walk all the way home to our apartment, just to make it another huge walking day. We're got home by 7pm, and I've not gotten off the couch!
It will be sad to leave Paris tomorrow - I have a list of places I'd like to explore on my next trip, but we covered so much this past week, and it's all been fantastic. Great weather, great food, great sight seeing and great friends; absolutely no complaints. (except sore knees!)
