(September 15, 2016, Thursday) We returned to Musee de L’Orangerie today because the “scarf” that my mom had bought yesterday wasn’t actually a scarf, but a pillowcase. We got the scarf in exchange for the pillowcase and the price difference between the two items.
I bought a medallion to remember the museum by.
Our next stop was the Notre Dame Cathedral, which I hadn’t seen the first time I was in Paris, in 2009.
We didn’t do many things today because I would fly to Rome tomorrow, while my mom and my sister would fly to Stockholm. We needed to prepare our stuff.
It’s bittersweet, because I had to leave Paris’ lovely Montmartre area. But tomorrow I would see Rome and the Vatican City, something that I had wanted to do the first time I went to Europe in 2009.
I took pictures of Sacre Coeur in Montmartre for the last time. Well, the last time that Sacre Coeur would be so close.
I also bought a Sacre Coeur medallion as a souvenir.
As I prepared for tomorrow’s flight to Rome, I learned that French traffic controllers were on strike, resulting in several flight cancellations. My Ryanair flight wasn’t cancelled, but I continued to monitor the situation.
