Paris day two: Concept stores, Musée d'Orsay

A rather lovely origami filled stationary store called Adeline Klam

On Tuesday we were drained from the amount of walking we did the day before so decided to get the metro everywhere which I find a lot easier to navigate than the London underground. Our first stop was the Musée d'Orsay where I was hoping to catch the Henri Rousseau exhibition. Unfortunately, that wasn't open until March (I don't know how I managed to get the dates wrong) but I did see a piece of his work alongside a lot of impressionism... I didn't particularly like this gallery all that much but it did have some beautiful architecture I could admire instead!

After the gallery we looked around an intriguing taxidermy shop located on Rue du Bac which I wish I could share with you but photography was prohibited - sorry! - and then we walked along Canal Saint-Martin which was sadly drained and in the process of being cleaned which was just our luck. This day consisted mostly of visiting lots of lovely shops and places they call 'concept stores' (a retail store that is selling a certain lifestyle or aesthetic rather than one type of object.) In the evening we made another visit to see the illuminated eiffel tower which was interrupted by a strange man following us all the way there... thankfully there was a group of us and we made it home safely but you can never be too careful!
