It's similar to how bones ache before a bad storm, and in this case Paris is my hurricane.

On September 25, 2010, you and a guest can get into more than 1,300 participating museums across the country for free, including the Museum of Fine arts in Boston, World Kite Museum & Hall of Fame in Washington, the Oz Museum in Kansas, and the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. All you need is a Museum Day ticket, which you can download from the Smithsonian Magazine's website. ...read more»
