Leaving Paris

I’m going to miss my room at the Meliá Vendôme Hotel both because it is comfortable and gave me easy access to central Paris.

On a whim yesterday I went to the Musée de l’Assistance Publique, which traces P1010030the evolution of medical assistance in Paris from medieval times to the early 20th century. It is quirky, including a beautiful illuminated manuscript, old surgical instruments and medical gadgets, and paintings of the hospital wards over time.

I am booked on the train to Amsterdam leaving at 10:25 this morning. It is about a 3 1/2 hour trip.

    Sounds like you had fun in Paris… Still enjoying the blog! Curious as to where after Amsterdam?
    P.S. Things I’d do in Amsterdam – no great surprises here (for what it’s worth)…
    1. Have a rijstaffel at an Indonesian restaurant anywhere.
    2. Walk around a lot…
    2. Van Gogh museum
    3. Anne Frank House
    4. Red Light District – because it’s unique
    5. Tour the Heineken factory – For some reason I really valued this when I was younger and did it mostly for the free beer at the end… Not sure how much value that’d have now but it makes the list!
