jardin des plantes
my favorite place in paris...le jardin des plantes. i could spend days lost and happy here, and i fervently hope that someday i'm given the opportunity just to make sure that were so. or at least that i get to see it again in the near future. preferably in the spring. and even more preferably on an expense account. anyone want to join me?
we (astrid and i--rich and gus had had enough of that "nature stuff," troglodytes that they are) started at the muséum national d'histoire naturelle, then through the main part of the jardin, then le ménagerie, and ended with the galeries d'anatomie comparée et de paléontologie. even with all that, we missed quite a bit. it is a gorgeous site with a tremendous history to it, topped off by the fact that an underground river, le bièvre, runs underneath the length of it.
i'm so ready to return!
