Day 7 - Lille, back to Paris
We spent our final day with Jen in Lille, taking advantage of some of our best weather to explore her city. We checked out of our beautiful hotel, the site of a fifteenth century hermitage, and started to take in the sights.
Maybe it isn't uncommon in France, but we were surprised by the beautiful art museum there, the Palais des Beaux‑Arts de Lille. (Does the museum in your town have a Rodin?) I guess we should not have been surprised, since it was no different than the rest of our trip.
We said our goodbyes to Jen--I think I waited until I was on the train before I cried--then took the TGV back to Paris. As if to prepare us for our reentry, we spent the night in a motel room that seem to be modeled after a space capsule and/or RV!
