A sunny morning with Sarah

Sarah running on the "Esplanade of the Invalides"
7:30 AM - Sarah just arrived from Ohio. This Saturday morning, the summer was ending and the air was a little bit chilly, but fortunately the sun was with us on the tour. On our way, among the nice places of Paris we saw, we went by the Rodin museum. The museum is inside a park where you can admire some famous creations of the sculptor. On our route, outside, from the street, we could see the "Thinker", very well-known statue.
Thank you Sarah!
