Musee d’Orsay: Cancelled due to strike

Thursday morning (April 6th) had us walking from our hotel down to Musee d’Orsay, passing many beautiful streets, fountains and squares along the way, including this very creative Metro station,

Place Andre Malraux,until we found ourselves walking past the Louvre;

we thought we would try Musee d’Orsay instead, as we did not have much time in Paris;
and saw some lovely statues outside of the building, but unfortunately, due to the riots and strikes,
we decided not to be disappointed by this and continued to walk along the Left Bank.
This photo of the Institut de France was taken from Pont des Arts, a beautiful pedestrian bridge.

We found ourselves back at Ile de la Cite, walking past Square du Vert Galant (Henri IV’s nickname)

A statue of Henri IV

which is found in the centre of Pont Neuf.
