    As long as you see Duke educated medical personnel, you should be fine.

    If you mean calling it a day - I'm with you - off to bed.

    Slept until my alarm went off this morning. A rarity for me.

    The art discussion didn't really takeoff.

    I think your question got lost in the shuffle.

    I have only been there once. While seeing the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo was cool, I think I was most struck by Hammnurabi's stone. I guess it was the age and history that kind of floored me. The age of everything in Europe always blows my mind.

    The biggest disappointment for me in Louvre is their Vermeer. It's called "The Lacemaker". IMHO, it's the Pericles of Vermeer paintings.

    I still mourn the loss of "The Concert" from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. It's been 30 years!!

    I have not yet been to that museum. Next time I go to Paris, the Musee d'Orsay and the Musee Rodin are the 2 must sees.

    I've still got 37.1 miles to go in the Massachusetts Virtural Endurance Challenge. There were several distances to choose from. I picked "Plymouth to Provincetown" - the second shortest at 81 miles. It's supposed to be a challenge. I can still do it, averaging a 5k everyday from here on out but there will probably be at least one day where I can't get out, so, gonna need to have a couple of 10k days.

    We went to Paris last spring and skipped the Louvre in favor of the Orsay. I loved it. Impressionism is my jam and their Monet collection is 💯.

    If you go to the Musee d'Orsay, take the elevator to the top and work your way down. Hopefully you get the Impressionists to yourself or at least a much smaller crowd.

    The Musee Rodin is very cool as well. I'm much more of a sculpture guy. I liked the Bargello and the Galleria dell' Academia more than the Uffizi in Florence, for example.
