'The more things change......

{musee d'orsay, Paris}


I just love this old French proverb.......

''Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose''


''The more things change, the more they stay the same''


I think that this sums up France perfectly!


A demain mes amis,

  2. Thank you for including this photo. I have only had the opportunity to go to Paris once, but I did visit a handful of museums and while the Lourve was grand and magnificent, the Musee d'Orsay was my favorite and I remember taking a photo of this clock. Memories,memories. Thanks for the reminder. Have a great day.
