orsay




well, I was at the cafe inside the musee d'Orsay tonight with my parents, who are visiting for the holidays. We just had had time to take a few bites of our dinner when suddenly the lights went off. In the entire museum full of priceless paintings.

We were eating in a little hanging room behind one of the clocks (it is housed in the building of a former train station, of course), very high up, and we could see out the window beyond the clock that all of Paris was lit up, except for us -- and occasionally the search beam emitted from the Eiffel Tower would sweep the ceiling and cast beautiful colored shadows. Pitch blackness, and the emergency PA system repeating the same instructions over and over in four different languages. The museum guards manned the stairways but the waiters made jokes and we all finished our meal quite peacefully, as did the other diners, sometimes with the help of some light from their cell phones -- and payment in cash, of course. I did my best to convince my mother we were eating dinner at the Orsay while a Major Art Heist was taking place under our noses -- but she is far too sensible for me, ha. The terrorists didn't attack either, but we were in semi-darkness for about 75 minutes, looking at Renoirs and Seurats under the green security lights until finally, finally electricity returned and they re-opened up the good part of the fifth floor, so we could go visit Cezanne, van Gogh, Monet and Caillebotte, and Ingres later on.

It was particularly funny for me since I am actually going to a restaurant tomorrow precisely in order to eat in the dark -- you order at the bar, and then are led indian-file in the pitch black darkness around the other diners to your table -- where you pour your wine and eat in the dark, served by a waitstaff entirely composed of blind people.

The food is supposed to be delicious.

and no, my dinner companions for tomorrow night will not be my parents, thank god!! much as I love them.

Happy New Years.
