Pais Vacation - Day 4

Yesterday was another busy day as we visited the Musee d'Orsay, Napoleon's tomb and the Eiffel Tower.  All together, we walked about 8.2 miles.  As I said, the walking is countering at least some of the food and wine consumption that we have indulged in.  The Impressionist exhibit at the Musee d'Orsay was wonderful.  Napoleon's tomb drives home what an amazing man Napoleon was and some of his vision - the Code Napoleon remains the basis for the laws of many parts of Europe today (and in the state of Louisiana in the USA). 

The Calife - where we had our dinner cruise on Monday
A view from the top of the Eiffel Tower - I did NOT go all the way to the top!
Today we plan to visit Sainte Chappel and then travel to Giverny in the Normandy countryside to see Monet's home and gardens.

I'd go as far up as they allow! (And farther if possible!)

Great pics! Great times!
