Hoping that spring had actually sprung, today I was headed to the Marais and the Musee Carnavalet or the official name, Les Amis du Musée Carnavalet, beautiful gardens and museum! After that a walk over to the Place des Vosges and maybe lunch at Cafe Victor Hugo. After lunch pass through the Hotel Sully and then over to the Bastille area!

Colonne de Juillet, The July Column (French: Colonne de Juillet) is a monumental column in Paris commemorating the Revolution of 1830. It stands in the center of the Place de la Bastille and celebrates the Trois Glorieuses — the "three glorious" days of 27–29 July 1830 that saw the fall of King Charles X of France and the commencement of the "July Monarchy" of Louis-Philippe, King of the French. It was built between 1835 and 1840.
