Today we are going to visit Versailles—thus our leaving Paris proper for the night. We've already visited Monet's water lillies in the Orangerie, toured the Musee d'Orsay, admired the stained glass of Sainte Chapelle and shuddered thinking of the cruelty of the guillotine while touring the Conciergerie. One really cool (and new for me) museum was the one chronicling the history of the Paris hospitals, replete with state-of-the-art surgical tools—at least in the 17th century! All cool stuff.

Tonight we'll be back in Paris and for Saturday and Sunday I am planning visits to a few more choice spots. I'll try to add a few more photos in the next few days, so please come back.
