A Star Wars exhibition is making its way around Europe. It opened in Paris last week so we took part in it.

No photos allowed in the two art museums we visited, musee de l'organerie and musee d'orsay. Our timing was incredible as it was the least crowded I had ever experienced in previous visits to these museums...despite it being a school vacation time here in Paris.
We bought some macaroons from the famous Pierre Herme. A box of seven cookies was $18 Euros...very expensive...they were delicious but I'm not sure they are worth the price for a cookie just a little bit bigger than an Oreo. Here are the flavors as best as I can remember.
From left to right:
Chocolate and Passionfruit
Mint and Mulberry
Chocolate with a berry flavor
Iris and some other flavor...can't remember...garden inspired
My husband had an unexpected business trip to Koln, Germany so we jumped in the car and came with him. A pretty day but no shops were open on Sunday. And because I have another appointment on Wednesday to pick up my French visa, we are heading back to Paris via the train on Monday.
Zack and Lindsey on a bridge across the Rhein overlooking Koln.
We had some jaeger schnitzel last night with stewed red cabbage and sautéed potatoes and the locally brewed Kolsch beer.
For lunch I had a great chicken curry.
We decide to give Zack a break from art museums and instead went to a great museum in Koln with excavated Roman ruins found here in Koln...fascinating.
Needles and thimbles.
Some glass shoes for the afterlife...
Glass urns for cremated remains.
May the Force be with you.
