i learned that certain european cities/countries sleep later on certain days of the week. for example, the french sleep late on thursday night. maybe this only happens in paris. but, this worked out fine on this thursday late afternoon as i didn’t wake up until 2:30pm and it was raining. and, the musee orsay opens until 9:45pm rather than their usual 6pm. plus, it was raining. so, off to somewhere indoor and opens late i go.
orsay exhibits modern artists. like degas above.
orsay is a decommissioned train station
maybe that is why it looks like a train station.

train station was to be demolished after decommission but parisian turn it into museum. in america, it would become mall or parking lot.

sun sets late in paris. after leaving orsay, we cross the seine back to the right side of the ile

clouds low and dark
scaring away the other tourists
