Day 28 - Wednesday 19th May - Paris: apartment, Musee d' Orsay

Well we said 'au revoir' to our new friends which we had made on our Trafalgar European tour and decided to shop around at a local shopping centre for hand luggage and 'voila' we were very lucky to fin some for 10euro each - cheap & just what we needed! Got a shuttle taxi from the hotel to our 1900 century Paris apartment and 'wow' the apartment was just lovely, even better than the photo's on the internet. There was a very small elevator that could only fit 2 people! It was a bit 'squeazy' but we did it! Contacted Cathy & Lynne (2 friends from Melb) and organised to meet at the Musee D'Orsay where we went around looking at all the wonderful Impressionism works of art and Lynda had a mission to find one of Claude Monet's works of art - 'Ladies in the Garden' which was eventually found & pictures taken in front of it too (Michelle). We decided to stop for a coffee and had it in a delightful cafe in the Musee D'Orsay (please see the picture the place was beautiful).
After organising to meet Cathy & Lynne the next day for our trip to Giverny, we went back to the apartment and did some grocery shopping and finally stayed in for a dinner. We also discovered that we could see the Eiffel Tower from the centre of the living room window too! So nice and really feels we're in France.
