Musee de la Toile de Jouy

This museum and the bus ride to it were really the highlight of my trip.  Evidently, everyone else was at the Palace of Versailles - so an entire bus kindly chauffered the two of us through narrow streets, away from the bustle of Versailles - into the peaceful countryside and the mountain in bloom with the colorful autumn leaves, winding back and forth up and around a hillside, past the impressively grand and historic Buc Aqueduct. And suddenly - as if transported into the past, we arrived at the charming and wonderful Musee de la Toile de Jouy!  I love thinking of that journey and my visit there - even now, seven months later... my heart literally still flutters like a bird - remembering.

Listening to a relaxation tutorial on the turbulent plane ride home:  "Now clench your buttocks as tight as you can and peer over the seat in front of you...", I decided instead to create a soundtrack for the bumpety-bump - which worked.  The turbulence transformed to something quite exciting and I listened to Jabberwocky's Pola over and over and over - until all was smooth.
