What can I say? It’s the Louvre … world renown … with a well-deserved reputation. My lady was insistent on seeing two exhibits, the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo, and that would make her visit a success.
The museum, itself, is large, majestic and magnificent. The admission lines moved swiftly via the use of automated machines that sucked up your credit card and spit out your admission tickets. There were people all around … crowds … but, not congestion. On the way to finding Mona, there were lots and lots of distractions, almost enough to forget your mission. When we got to Mona, there was a crowd around her, but not sufficient congestion to prevent me from getting close to her small frame and capture a picture as she smiled. Next stop was Venus… and on the way were lots of distractions. At Venus, there was a crowd surrounding her … and my camera went into action. We saw Egyptian artifacts … Greek … and … paintings on the ceiling … it was exhaustive. I think it would take five full days to fully appreciate the Louvre. This was our first trip to Paris, but we plan to do it again as part of our bucket list. When we do, the Louvre will again be on our itinerary.
