Paris Diary part 13

Day 15
25°, sunny.

A quick day at work and some time at Musée Rodin with The Thinker, The Kiss and some paintings by Monet, Renoir, Munch and van Gogh. They were at the tail end of a large three year renovation, but most of the museum was open to the public.

The Louvre is open late on Wednesdays, so Lily & I went there at night. The Egyptian and Islamic rooms were closed and would be until the middle of May. Some of the Greek and Roman rooms were closed, but all of the sculptures outside of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome were available, and the Cour Marly was open.

Unfortunately, most of the French paintings were not. Some of the 18th and 19th century French rooms were closed until May or July, while most were closed until 2016. But we still saw most of the Louvre's vast collection of European paintings with plenty of Rembrandt, Raphael, da Vinci and Caravaggio.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
