A Day of Museums

Another splendid breakfast, smoked salmon with horse raddish, then straight off to visit the museums. First off was the Pergammon, the Ishtar gate was even better than I had imagined. Then we went to the Egyptian museum for another treat, the head of Nefertiti. A break for lunch, the oysters were on special offer in Galleries Lafayette, so combined with a plate of bulots, there was no competition. Much restored, we then went back to see romantic and 19 century painting. Having exhausted ourselves with Caspar David Friedrich we called it a day and set off for home stopping for a beer in the place across the road. Hyw then went in the supermarket, I walked back to the hotel and watched from a distance as Hyw went in the opposite direction! There was nothing I could do except wait for about ten minutes until he realised!

Supper tonight was another visit to the Turkish restaurant, Honca they really deserve a Michelin star. Tonight we were given free drinks and I had a fig and date mousse! Scrumptious. Pictures to follow.
