A total WOW day. I really enjoyed the Notre Dame in the daylight today; more than on Christmas. The sun was hitting the windows just right and the light was incredible. We walked around outside as well and got the full beneift of the architecture. But the first real WOW moment came when we walked into Saint Chappele which is floor to ceiling stained glass windows, We walked up the stairs and into the chapel and it took my breath away. This was built to house Jesus' crown of thorns.
My second WOW moment came when we walked into the gallery with some of Monet's water lily paintings. I had no idea they were so huge. Beautiful. Much more moving than looking at the Mona Lisa! Went on to the D'Orsay Museum and saw van Goghs, more Monets, Manets, and on and on. Great day.
Spell check isn't working and this is a difficult keyboard, so hope this is readable.
