8. Le Musée Rodin


Les jardins du Musée Rodin sont tres tranquilles. Le Musée Rodin est en La Rue de Varennes dans 7eme. C'est en face du Invalides où Napoleon est enterré. Il y a une différence grosse. Le Musée Rodin est très élégant. Les Invalides est de mauvais goût. Pourtant, les parcs près du Invalides sont très beau.

The Musee Rodin gardens are very peaceful. The musee is on Rue de Varennes in the 7th arrondissement. It is opposite The Invalides where Napoleon is buried. There is a big difference. Musee Rodin is very elegant. The Invalides is tasteless. However, the parks nearby The Invalides are very beautiful.

This is one of my favorite spots in Paris!

I was in Paris long ago, in 1983, and I still remember vividly the Musee Rodin. The Burghers of Calais... It took my breath away. Is there also a miltary museum across the street and a military hospital? I was amazed by the military museum--surprised myyself! And I hold a picure in my mind of 3 older women, white hair and all dressed in black, sitting in a small garden outside the military hospital. I would have taken a photo, but it looked to be too intimate of a moment and one of sadness. I did not want to invade that, but I've never forgotten them.

Spot oh here, Shiny.

I adored the Burghers and tossed up whether to post the image I did or one of the many details of the BoC that I made.

The military hospital is, indeed, The Invalides, were I to use its correct name. Running along the 'front' are quite gorgeous gardens, still. And there are recouperating service-people still sitting in the sun. Just the building itself that I found tacky. Moreso, in comparison with Musee Rodin.

So, let's go in French! J'aime aussi beaucoup ce musée et ses jardins et j'apprécie tout particulièrement les quelques sculptures de Camille Claudel... Cette femme a eu une vie si terrible... Pour Rodin, la gloire, pour elle l'asile psychiatrique...

Just a little thing about your French, if you don't mind: French speakers are used to put "le, la, les" almost everywhere (Le musée Rodin, la rue de Varennes, etc) and "s" to the adjectives when the noun is plural (les jardins sont tranquilles). I wish you a good day in your wonderful Sydney.

Alice, thank you very much. This is the sort of ongoing advice that I crave. I will endeavour to make the corrections.

Now let me try to read your French.
'I also much like this museum and its gardens and I appreciate all particularly the few sculpture of CC ... this woman had a life so terrible ... For Rodin, the glory, for she the psychiatric asylum

Yes, yes, thank you. My daughter is advising me to read read read and learn how thoughts are put together in French.

... and watch videos. All the French films that I find on video already are subtitled. I find that I am reading the subtitles and not simply listening. Shall have to watch more and train myself to ignore the subtitles!! Maybe on the second and subsequent viewings when I know the storyline off by heart.

Well done Jules, I love the light in this shot. I am hopeless at languages can almost get by in Swiss german, I'm lazy too and leave it p to Bill when in Europe.

You married well!

Francisca a dit…

Bien faites, Julie! J'aime bien cette image prise dans les jardins.

Francisca a dit…

PS. As-tu essayé de désactiver les sous-titres?

Julie a dit…

Forgive me for using English.

What is désactiver? It is not in my dictionary and I get two options when I google, either deactivate or decontaminate.

AH ... have worked it out. You are not talking about the writing on the blog. YOu are saying that when I watch a video with subtitles to simply turn them off. Duh! But of course ... shall give that a go.

Et voilà! :-)
