Day 2

Today we spent the entire at the Louvre Museum and we were extremely impressed by the number of pieces of art and sculptures. From early antiquities (greeks-romans-french-egyptian) there was something from everyone of the ancient world. Just to name a few were The Winged Victory, Venus de Milo, and many, many more. There were also a excellent selection of paintings, including the famous Mona Lisa. We were very surprised by the size of the work and the crowd of people trying to get a photo of the painting. We took lots of pictures and will post some tomorrow and also the Eiffel Tower and Norte Dame.

Today was also another day of strike by French workers and this made the ride home from the Louvre very packed with folks trying to get home from work. Marcella and I were very glad that we are fairly tall and felt like sardines.

More tomorrow.......
