Musee Guimet

This Museum is an extension of Louvre Museum-collection of objects from Asia. Mostly the objects are from south Asia and far east Asia, if you been to London British Museum and visited Asian sections you will feel deja vu. It is located in 16th arrondissement of Paris next to Metro Station of Iena.
We visited the same with Francois; it was only Francois who told us about this museum. He had been here before few times. This place not very big but takes half day at least or more depending your likes or dislikes. As you can see from our pictures that there are Buddha which comes from Pakistan to China. There are lots of collections from Japan,China and Tibet which is very beautiful and hard to explain for me. The porcelain pieces from far-east is also very beautiful and they are quite big.

Itlay revisited

We have been to Rome for 4 days in 2003 but we wanted to visit the other parts of Italy but could not do that due to time constrain. We were planning for trip to Florence, Venice etc old classic route for long time.

Krovi and Vidya went to Italy on their paper honeymoon which was 3 weeks earlier than us and they did provided us with lots of good tips. Then we too spent a lot of time on Internet especially on Rick Steve's site and talking to other friends about the same.

We found a very good deal on train via SNCF to Milan for to and fro in 1st class which we opted. We booked almost all our hotels via venere after planning our itinerary.

Our itinerary was:
Day1 : Arrive Milan, after check-in leave for Pleasure day-trip to Lake Como and back to Milan.

Day4: Day trip to Sienna and back to Florence
Day5: Explore renaissance city Florence
Day6: Half day at Florence and leave for Venice
