Ooh La La!

Another day in the heart of Paris yesterday. Walking through the streets of Montmatre to go to the bus stop we noticed that this is how you fix your car in France - my Mum - otherwise known as "Mona duct tape fixes everything Bowles" - would be proud of this car owner!!
 We visited Musee De L'Orangerie which had a great Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera temporary exhibition (I love Rivera's work and the story of Frida and Diego's life), and several of Monet's LARGE waterlily paintings - just beautiful.
And then after a snack of crepes and a caffe latte we headed to the Musee D'Orsay. Wow, Wow, Wow! More famous artists than you can poke a stick at - and we didn't see it all so are heading back there today. Picasso, Van Gogh, Manet, Monet, Pissaro, Seurat, Gauguin.......Wow! James was a little awestruck!
There was also a great temporary exhibition called 'Masculine' which focussed on the male nude from historical to contemporary times - fantastic show. Imagine being an art student and living in Paris!
 And to end the day we went to a see La Nouvelle Eve - a fantastic cabaret show. Lynda if you're reading this, thanks for the great tip - we loved it!
 No photos were allowed of the show so here's a couple of Australians trying to pretend they're cultured!!
 Great food and wine with lovely table service.

 And on the way home another little night shot - this is where we live!! the building in the middle is our apartment building - we are up three flights of stairs. I'm getting fit!!! 
Love to all til next time xx

Hi guys! Finally able to have a look at your blog, as you know its been a busy week! Love following you on Instagram though for some instant travel gratification. Montmartre looks beautiful, and the view from your apartment... wow! Tell me, what is your dingo friends name and how did he get so close to Mona?! A bit of trick photography, eh?
