French Week: Musee Rodin

My favorite thing in all of France is the Musee Rodin. That's my journal entry from my last trip there in 2007.

As you can see: between the tea roses, the giant fireplaces, the french doors and the gray velvet chairs, it's exactly what I would want in an enormous Parisian mansion of my own. It's just perfect. Oh, and there's some pretty amazing sculpture there too.

On any visit to Paris, I recommend spending a whole day there, complete with a big picnic in the gardens. And you're just a few blocks from the Musee d'Orsay if you can manage to tear yourself away.

Have you been to the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford? It has the largest Rodin collection outside of Paris, and currently Stanford's entire collection is on display.

I love the Rodin museum. My best friend and I spent a totally fun afternoon there trying to casual check out a cute boy (subtly I tell you, plenty of statues to hide behind) and enjoying the art.

I'm loving French week so far!
