After we finished at the Eiffel Tower, we walked along Le Seine, on the way to Musee D’Orsay.  The skies threatened to unleash, but no rain ever actually came down.

Musee D’Orsay
There was a line approximately 2 hours long just to get into the museum, so we decided to pass.  Instead, we crossed the river to the Louvre and Jardin Tuileries.  And there was a line 3 hours long to get into the Louvre, so we skipped that too.  Instead, we went for a stroll in the garden.

The gardens themselves were not in very good condition.  It was almost as if they grounds crew had given up on trying to keep them nice.  Also, there were people EVERYWHERE, being loud and obnoxious.  Luckily you can’t hear them in the pictures.
We followed the garden to Place de la Concorde, then wandered some more on some quieter streets.

After dinner, we walked back to Pont Alexandre III for a view of the sights by night.

Say something!
