A Weekend in Paris

7 – 9th January

Three days in Paris and three brilliant exhibitions, what better way to start 2012? Saturday, we visited Centre Pompidou to see Danser sa vie (on until 2nd April) and Yayoi Kusama (ended now but opens at Tate Modern 9th February). Sketches of Danser sa vie will follow soon, not yet photographed.

Sunday, a stroll to Musee d’Orsay, we saw Beauty, Morals and Voluptuousness in the England of Oscar Wilde (also ended). Would have liked to see Matisse, Cezanne, Picasso… The Stein family’s adventure in art at the Grand Palais, but arrived too late, a 4 hour queue would have allowed us in as the Museum closed (also finished).

Paris  mmm…  macaroons 

Paris  For the best views of Paris take a ride on La Grande Roue (Ferris Wheel), La Place de la Concorde, in place until 19th February and of course the escalators on the outside of Centre Pompidou.

Visit Merci, 111 Blvd. Beaumarchais, 75003, for breakfast and stylish shopping where a percentage of everything sold goes to to charity.


Thanks to Camilla for my wonderful birthday trip to Paris and thanks Ben and Roger for the Danser sa Vie catalogues, giving us the idea.
