After the Eiffel Tower, I walked back across the river and headed west to the Marmotten Museum. [A] on the map. I picked up a sandwich along the way and ate it as I walked.
The guidebook said it was an untouristy place that featured a lot of Monet and other french painters. That sounded right up my alley. You can see the building in the photo below. It was a large old city house, with great architectural details inside and was a wonderful place to look at paintings. You could get really close and it wasn't crowded at all. I went through the entire place twice, because I could.
Afterwards there was a lovely park on the way as I headed back towards the hotel.
I stopped in at the bass shop and made arrangements to rent a bass for a couple of days. Ten days is an awfully long time to go without playing, and I didn't want my calluses to completely fall off.
In the evening I hung out with Doug. We got something to eat and then went to a concert at the International Trombone Festival.
Afterwards we wandered around for a bit before heading back to our hotel. We have become totally addicted to walking for the sake of walking in Paris. There's just so much to see!
