The market has both dry and wet stuff. For dry stuff, clothes, handcrafts, etc. We focus on the wet stuff, flowers, candy, roasted chicken, and most importantly seafoods. You can ask them to open for you to taste on site.

As long as the seafood is fresh, they are yummy....not expensive too. We met a lot of tourists, Chinese, Malaysian, Hongkonger, etc..... We have quite a lot of oysters as breakfast. My comment was "Never pair fresh and yummy oyster with freshly brewed cappuccino".......

After breakfast, our first place to go was Musee Picasso. In addition to some paintings by Picasso, this museum mainly focused on the sculpture.

This sculpture of woman is interesting. You can feel different woman by seeing from different angles. Later I found its sketch.

After that, we went to Musee National d'Art Moderne at Centre Pompidou. The building itself is worth to visit. The museum is for modern art.

Our plan was to go to Notre Dame on foot but we found that there were a lot of people already. This is the place where Museum Pass holders still needed to line up for entry.

We walked to District 5 and visited Patheon. A nice Greek building but tombs of some famous people, including Hugo, etc....

The hall inside is huge, with a pendulum clock in the middle.

It is used for memorizing the national heroes. The basement level has the tombs of the heroes. This is the tomb of Hugo, the author of Le Miserable.
