Arts and Archives 2014: Paris and the slow connection




(Tacca chantrieri - Bat Flower by Agathe Ravet-Haevermans) 

The slow internet connection at our hotel makes any postings extremely difficult if not impossible. Our time in Paris started with a day in Versailles, followed by a museum (Louvre etc.) day and finally today we spent the whole day at the Natural History Museum With Agathe Ravet-Haevermans and her husband Dr. Thomas Haevermans and got a wonderful tour of the botany library and herbarium. We also visited the entomology department.
More pictures later -
This is how a two hour line looks like - outside the gates of Versailles

We saw some of the colorful bugs (and butterflies) from the vast insect collection.
