After a slow start, we hit the streets Sunday afternoon under a gorgeous blue sky. I think it was probably the bluest, warmest day Paris had seen in weeks. We walked over to the Grand Palais and joined the queue for the Edward Hopper exhibit, which ends next week. The line didn’t look all that long, but it moved v-e-r-y slowly.
We stood in that line for close to an hour and a half before deciding that the sun didn’t shine in Paris enough for us to waste it standing on the side of the Grand Palais. So we left. Later, Hopper.
We walked past the Petit Palais, which looked quite splendid basking in the sun.
We crossed the river and then looked back over the bridge and noticed that our sun was quickly being chased away by ominous clouds. Paris, you are so fickle.
So we did the only thing we could do under the circumstances. We took refuge in a cafe and a glass of wine. And then we scurried home before the rain began.
And that was Sunday.

We went Saturday night, but I had purchased tickets online, so we only waited about 15 minutes…. I’ve written about it at FindingNoon, so you can see what you missed.
Mr French would say, save your crowded line time for the Dali exhibit at the Pompidou, but I really enjoyed Hopper (will be open 72 hours non-stop this weekend!)
Sylvia, you know I read your posts when the ink is still wet! We will discuss over lunch. A bientot.
What a lovely Sunday to remember!
Kate, could you please send me your Paris address? I could show up on your doorstep any day.
