Last weekend I visited two of my CEMS friends in Paris. Misa and Peta have a nice flat close to the City center and I had the chance to spend two nights and one and half days with them. We did some sightseeing along the river and I was finally at Musée D´Orsay where most of the French impressionist art is shown. We spent more than 3 hours inside and it was just great. I saw the original of Vincent van Gogh´s picture of his room in Arles and Paul Gauguin´s women from Tahiti and Renoir, Degas, Monet, Manet, Cézanne, Toulous-Lautrec, Courbet, Rodin - perfect master pieces. I can recommend this museum to any fan of the 19th century art. We went out in the Latin Quarter and on Sunday morning I visited a nice market near the place where the girls live. Paris is a nice place and I also tried the high-speed train for the first time:
le Thalys :-) - Cologne-Paris in 3:50 hours.
