I'm in Paris - so I thought I'd try and see the Monet exhibition - it looks so good. Went to the Grand Palais at 2:30 yesterday - foggy, damp, not too cold - but three hours queue - decided to go off and come back at seven - hoping for less queue - came back at 7:30 - attendants reckoned there would still be three hours of queue (don't know what they do when it get towards 9 - the exhibition closes at 10!) Gave up, three hrs queue is too much for me - this is what happened the last time - 20+ years ago. Pity. Big pity. Oh well..
