September 16, overcast but comfortable
We split up today—Chuck to the Louvre and whatever else he could fit in, and me to do a walk through the Marais and then to the Pompidou Center.
I was a little nervous about it; after all, we’re all alone here with no phones and no way to reach each other if something happens. However, it worked out for me but that’s because I made it home! Chuck is still no where to be seen. He’ll have to write about his own day.
I really love walking through Paris and this neighborhood is one of my favorites. I’ll let the photos do the talking.

What a mix of things to see! I even stopped at the free Victor Hugo museum but that was mostly to use their nice bathroom. Which begs the question, what do all the mom’s do when their kids need a toilet? There were loads of kids in the park today and not a toilet in site. I must say, Rick Steves came through again with his walking tour of The Marais in his Paris book that I had loaded onto my Kindle.
The Pompidou was interesting—mostly disturbing feminist art today.
On a different note, we spent last evening with our wonderful campsite neighbors, Hans and Nel, sitting by the river talking and enjoying some wine.
