After missing Easter morning church services by sleeping too late and then missing the Musee D'Orsay because the wait in line was about four hours, we walked instead. And at some point during the walk, Trudy recognized the neighborhood and realized it was the neighborhood of the small, Maillol museum recommended by Joni Kahn. Paris Pratique to the rescue, and we traced our steps back a few blocks to the museum and this gargoyle fountain right outside. There was no line whatsoever and inside was an interesting special show, complementary to the Picasso exhibit we saw yesterday.
On the walk back home we discovered a series of fabulous shoe stores on the Rue de Grenelle, including the shop of Christian Louboutin, who is to shoes what Picasso was to painting. Stay tuned for my Paris Shoe Special yet to come on heyjud.
