Well I may not have been on the bike, but my legs and feet are aching after 2 days of walking around the streets of Paris. Thankfully, today has been dry and the sun even showed itself a couple of times. First stop was the Museum d'Orsay, a fabulous art gallery in an old railway station, and it's always a good day in my opinion when you get to see a Van Gogh. There were plenty of Monet's work on display as well as many other impressionists along with sculptures and furniture. Actulually the furniture display felt a bit like Ikea, but with second hand stuff.
Next stop was the Eiffel Tower and more queueing, however it was well worth it as the views from the top were outstanding. The rest of the day was spent wandering around the various sights such as Arc de Triumph and Champ Elysees etc.
Two has not been enough in this fine city but tomorrow I move on in the vague direction of Chartres. I am a bit concerned as it will be the first day without navigators, so the fun really starts.
