Voyage to Paris, and beyond?

We started with our trip to Paris in March 2006...and from there, who knows? We are a mother and daughter having an adventure.

Our visit to Beaubourg.


Yesterday we went to the Beaubourg museum-CB. We saw an exhibit especially for kids called Téte à téte, which was portraits from the Louvre, next to portraits from Beaubourg - very old and very modern together. There were lots of interesting activities too - we got to mix up different eyes, noses, ears and mouths to make faces, and in this picture we used a joystick to distort our faces in different ways - colorized, mushed up, or like a kaleidescope. After that we took the escalator up to the very top and got a great view of Paris -- in the rain and fog! We also saw some very interesting paintings and sculptures -- CB's favorites were the Picassos. And we saw one like in "Olivia" -- by Jackson Pollock. CB says, "I could do that in about five minutes!"

After that we went to the Musée d'art et d'histoire de Judaisme, and then walked to Place des Vosges. But it was very cold and rainy and not so much fun! (We both got mad at each other!) Finally we found a restaurant where we could eat hamburgers and frites (french fries). When we got there, there was a film crew making a movie of an old man reading a book - we thought he must be somebody very important or famous. By then we were in a much better mood. We came home and went to bed early. Today we've been making some of our own paintings, and we went out early to the Doll Museum. In a little while we're going to Versailles! (Tonight or tomorrow we'll have some great pictures to post on our blog.) - CD and SI

Hamburgers & french fries? How American! Hope you enjoyed your little taste of home in Paris.

Now tell your mom to stop working and get vacationing!
