October 15, Friday

. Back at the Louvre for renaissance and medieval art. I've never seen such hugh
paintings. The day was overcast but not cold. We strolled along the garden of Tuileries to the
Orangerie. We did find the Orangerie open. Monet, Renoir and learned about Modigliani's
tragic life. Did we mention the bicyclists riding through all traffic at all hours. Men in busisness
suits, women in skirts, dresses and no helmut. They flow with traffic with no fear. They are
older adults even our ages. Very french. Some use the bikes that are for rent. They are in
rows in several places, using a special membership card to use them.
