Musee du Quai de Branly
The first stop was a museum which specializes in native cultures the non-Western world. We first saw the permanent exhibits, organized by area (Oceania, Asia, Africa, the Americas), and then a temporary exhibit on things inspired by Jazz over the last century.
Musee du Quai de Branly; the Jazz exhibit.
(Rolf: I thought the best part of the exhibit was Guitar Drag, a 14-minute film of a guy (in Texas, of course) dragging a plugged-in and full-volume electric guitar behind his pickup truck on- and off-road. To get the full effect, turn it up REAL loud.)
They hand cut the Serano ham (the diagonal things are hams) but slice the chorizo and other sausage with a traditional meat slicer.
Here's the neighborhood in the 7e.
Totally funky folding bike- do they carry these at Trophy?
These are all electric bikes. Ok, whatever.
Ok, at least these I recognize...
The exhibit of historic bikes.
And bikes of the future?
You never know what you'll find on the streets of Paris. A Chinese Pagoda?
Our next destination, the Musee Nissam de Camondo. This is a 19th century mansion in which the former owner did the whole house up in 18th century French style, by getting wall panels, furniture, everything as antiques. For example, there are several rugs from the Louvre, from when the Louvre was a palace, not a museum itself.
Finally, we walked through Parc de Monceau to the Metro to go home.
