  • Wednesday, May 20, 2009 paris day 5 we ran about town like crazed tourists today. in the morning, we lingered at the musée rodin, by far my favorite museum in paris. luckily, dave enjoyed it as well. we lunched in the garden café there. then it was off to the musée d'orsay, the musée cluny, and sainte-chapelle. (we skipped the louvre this trip because most of the exhibits we wanted to see were closed for renovations.) we wandered through the latin quarter again, and had a snack at maoz falafel. later that evening, we patronized our local cheese and wine shop for a lovely and relaxed dinner in.
