Last week my chère amie Genie over at Paris and Beyond featured a detail of a railing at the wonderful Petit Palais. I dug around and found this view of the staircase taken in November, 2008. I remember that day very well. Karen, Alice, Peter and I tromped through a cold blowing rainstorm to get there only to find everyone outside due to a bomb scare. We were amazed to find a kindergarten class there waiting patiently in the rain as well. When we were allowed in to view the fabulous photography exhibit, les petit enfants were seated on the floor with clipboards and pencils to sketch the statue in the middle of the room. I posted a photo here. I still smile when I remember that scene!
