... next stop was Notre Dame cathedral. It was beautiful but the stop was way too close to us just getting on- we were not about to get off so soon. Onward past many bridges and buildings to another art gallery/ museum that had a Van Gogh exhibition on. We thought as we missed the louvre that this might be a good second option, until we saw the length of the queue to get in. We did get off here though as we were now hungry and on the lookout ...
