Paris Secrets Revealed 2016: Rodin Museum and Meals to Remember

J – Rodin was a profoundly moving artist …

compelling and irresistible. I visit the museum each year. This year the remodel was done. Beautiful. I have a similar reaction to the two amazing meals I had on my last two days in Paris. Compelling. Irresistible. Must return.
