A working trip to Paris – or at least that’s what I’ve told family and friends. Research is work, after all. A second objective of the trip is to feel like we’re living here, if only for three weeks, so we’ve taken an apartment and are cooking many of our meals after shopping in the markets and local epiceries, fromageries, boucheries, boulangeries and other shops. Must not forget the wine shops!
We walk and walk and walk, our days varying in distance covered but by the end of most days, my feet protest — loudly.
With the 19th century as a focus, more particularly the period from 1870 onward, museums and sites relevant to that period are on the ‘must see’ list. A sample of places seen.
