Traveling Professor Venus de MiloWhat a day it was!  We visited two of the top museums in the world in one day.  Can you guess which ones they are?   We started out our day in London took the trip under the channel to Paris, the City of Light.  It was tough to say goodbye to London, because the people were so friendly, the sites were so exciting, and the food was out of this world.   But it is "bonjour" to Paris, and we are looking forward to a week of art, culture, cuisine and fun.
