I was not expecting this. A beautiful collection of Asian art. I spent way longer at the museum than planned. Not only beautiful Buddha statues but a gorgeous jija from Nepal and splendid No masques. Count on at least three hours

Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
