Thursday 21 January - Rodin Museum

The Rodin Museum has just completed  three year upgrade.  The new box office complex is now useless because no provision was made for increased security.  As a result we had first to go through security in a tent in the courtyard and then subject ourselves to a front office that was staffed with incompetents who did not even know how to sell tickets.

Once inside the improvements were evident.  The floors no longer creak with every step and the exhibits have been augmented with many pictures.

The garden is as interesting as the house itself and was especially good today with a warm sun in a cloudless sky.

The Dome of Les Invalides is an imposing structure especially from the garden of the Rodin museum.
On my way through Saint-Lazare I came across another 170xx electric locomotive on a train to Mantes.
This evening I actually did some cooking.  Confit de Canard with fried crispy potatoes and Brussels sprouts.  The potatoes were awesome.
