Musee du Quai Branly: where dialogue meets culture

I went to the Palais de Tokyo to see the Triennial today, thinking Mardi was Monday, but Mardi is Tuesday and it is closed on Tuesday. It didn't matter, as I was strolling through chilly + drizzling Paris with a huge grin on my face because Jim Elkins will write an essay for my Hiroshima book!!!!! And i saw signs for the Musee du Quai Branly and walked over the bridge, gazing at the Eiffel Tower and had a fine lunch at their cafe - smoked salmon on fresh bread with dill cream and cucembers and salad and then ventured into the museum. I kept talking to myself, out loud, saying things like, "I have never been in a museum like this before."
