Moments from my day: Paris

We walked through Le Jardin de Tuileries, past its barren trees and green chairs, past its large pond where in the Summer you would find toy boats racing for victory. We walked to the Jardin des Plantes and somehow sneaked in (without realising) into its tropical greenhouse, and then proceeded to the Musee de l’Orangerie to see Monet’s Water Lilies. We entered the atrium and stood in awe and then, as we prepared to leave the exhibition, we entered into a second atrium which contained his other Water Lilies and we stood in total bewilderment.
