Day 13 - Art and Fails

Good Morning!

Well... for me. For you guys in Australia it's about 9pm! I'm pretty sad about the situation in Melbourne at the moment. I can't believe we are doing so BADLY! We didn't even manage 100 runs in our first innings! (If you haven't guessed yet I'm talking about cricket).

This morning we went to Musee D'Orly early so we could get in without waiting. We got there 45 mins before opening time so we could be the first to go in. Inside was amazing! There were striking sculptures, amazing paintings and highly detailed scale-models. My favourite was the gladiator exhibition by Gerome. This had some gladiator sculptures and some amazing large-scale paintings.

After the Museum we went to a cafe for a hot chocolate. (LITERALLY!) It was really melted chocolate in a cup! It was so rich and yummy! Anyway, after this we went to Sainte Chapelle. We waited 1 hour in the line to get in and dad even missed out because we had some items in our bags that we classified as dangerous. :( It was beautiful inside with all the ornate windows and nice statues and vaulted ceilings. We didn't stay in long but it was definitely worth the wait.

Afterwards we had a look into going to the Notre Dame. In the end we didn't go because the lines were monumental! We left and went to the catacombs which we hoped wouldn't be too crowded but they we lined up as well. We ended up going home early and going to Papa's again. We are going to go to dinner with him tonight which should be fun. Cya l8er!
