After such a virtuous lunch, we felt entitled to dessert. The dessert was very French: fondant chocolat with creme anglaise and whipped cream. The creme anglaise came in a small plastic syringe so you could inject it into your cake. (Perhaps we should have asked for a needle so we could inject it directly into our arteries.)
On our way to find the museum, we stumbled upon a Metre Etalon, a plaque in the wall with two metal tabs showing the exact distance of a meter. Sixteen of these were installed throughout Paris in 1796 and 1797 in highly frequented locations. The one we discovered, next to Luxembourg Gardens, is one of only two remaining, and is the only one in its original location.
We also passed by a doll shop with a charming market vendor tableau.
The permanent exhibit at Musée Zadkine consists of a large number of Zadkine's sculptures. Today was the first day of a temporary exhibit of color photographs taken in the Russian countryside from 1904 to 1917 - very interesting.
