Friday, January 11

Pictures from Friday's adventures are here.

First up was the Orsay. They prohibit photography of the collection, but I took a few photos of the building and views. Next I journeyed over to the vicinity of the Eiffel Tower. Note that when I am home, I will be editing this set to select the best of many similar photos.

Then, as cloud turned to light rain, I headed over to the Hotel de Ville and the Pompidou. By the time I reached there, the clouds had lifted a bit and I got some reasonable views. Returning to the hotel was a bit of an adventure, as the RER line was stopped due to police activity at Cite Universitaire. Of course, that meant the alternate metro line was jammed.

Finally, for those interested in plumbing, there are a few pictures of the shower in my room to show its fine system for controlling the flow and temperature of the water. Too often, in cramped spaces, I have accidentally changed the temperature by knocking the handle with my elbow.
