Day 12, Vive la France

Today... which was yesterday... which was a Thursday... I went to Paris to check out the Musée d'Orsay. This is probably the best museum for painting I have ever been to if not one of the top three. If you like good painting... this is where it is at! Almost every painting in every art history book is coming out of this museum... especially if you like Impressionism. Huge collection of Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, Renoir, Degas, Gauguin, Cezanne, Gerome, Millet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Courbet, etc. etc. etc. A painters heaven! I could spend days and days and days in this museum! I then went to Montmarte (Mo-Mart) area to the Sacred Heart Basilica. I was grabbed by security because you are not supposed to take pictures. I was listening to my music and walked right by the sign!
