The river is more like a canal and the medieval houses are very picturesque and there are many cafes and bar without side ...

The group met again at 12:30 to walk up to the Museum of Fine Art. Our guide Chantal showed us paintings from the Flemish primitives, as well as Brueghel, Bosch, Rubens, and David's "The Death of Marat." Turns out the original isn't in the Louvre but, of course, none of our Parisian tour guides ever mentioned ...
