Day 79 (18/8) - Pop art and Piss

Having train tickets on the Eurostar already booked for tomorrow, we decided to make the most of the day we had left in Paris. Too scared to leave Anne-Marie's bike locked up anywhere we spent the morning wandering through the urine soaked (seriously the whole city reeks of it) streets of this over-rated city looking for a replacement bicycle and after abandoning hope, the Afternoon at the Centre Georges Pompidou their modern art museum. It was impressive. A fantastic selection of international Modern art and two great exhibitions by Roy Lichtenstein and Simon Hantai, neither of them Parisians!

Two French freaks disappointed the Cheese shop was closed. MOOOO

One of Roy Lichtenstein's Famous pieces.
We didn't know Simon Hantai's work, but now have a huge appreciation for it.
