Last day in Paris

Sunday in Paris is very mellow.  Not a lot if open and many of the restaurants are closed.  The US used to be like that but no longer.  There is something charming about it but it can also be annoying.  We began the day at Carette for breakfast.  We had been before and Josh reminded me that I didn't like it but didn't recall.  He was right.  Totally over-rated. 

We went there for breakfast because it is right down the street from Palais de Tokyo.  Love this museum.  They recently re-opened after a renovation.  I love this photo of the Eiffel Tower which is in the neighborhood.

The museum is located in a structure where the World Fair was held in the early part of the 20th century.  This sculpture is hanging from the ceiling when you walk in. It is called "The Blind Leading The Blind" by Peter Buggenhout.

The exhibit was called Intense Proximity.  Their 3rd contemporary triennial.  I found most of the work really out there.  Fascinsting, compelling and wild stuff.

I might of loved the space more than the art but a museum that is absolutely worth visiting.

Josh took off to see a friend.  Fred and I just walked around and took in the last few hours.  We met Josh around 7pm Les Fines Gueules.  We had been there before.  Not much has changed since we were there last time so not as exciting this time around. 

Tomato salad with parm and olive oil

Veal steak with tiny mushrooms.

After dins we went to a sports bar that was PACKED and watched the finals of soccer tournament that has kept Fred and Josh entertained through Europe.  Perfect end to a great vacation.  

This is a bit old but just realized i never posted it…

    I was a bit sad that Portugal didn’t make it to the final. However, it is remarkable what such a small country (aprox 10 million people) managed to achieve!
