Sunday in Paris

We've been blessed with sunny weather for Cindy's visit to Paris. Today's walk took us to a new Chagall exhibit at the Musee d'art et d'histoire du Judaisme in the Marais. The exhibit featured several works borrowed from the Chagall museum in Nice which I visited last April.

Afterwards we crossed the Seine and went back to the left bank where we visited the Institut du Monde Arabe - a spectacular example of modern architecture. The south facade is made up of panels which include geometric motifs. The motifs are actually 240 motor-controlled apertures, which open and close every hour. Here's a closeup.

Oh, and there's a great view from the roof of the building.
