bright and early we arrived at the louvre. today was the day! we had nothing else planned and with rain in the forecast it was a good
day to be inside.
now everyone had warned us of the museums size, but I don’t think I was prepared for miles of hard marble floors, stairs up, stairs down, mazes upon mazes. corridors that lead to rooms the size of small cities! beautiful, massive, full of important pieces of our humanity and safe keeping of the facts that we exist with a long history on this planet.
the sculpture was my favorite and the art was a close second. we did not see all of the masters – Monet, De Gaulle, Renoir were missed, but the art that I did see exposed me to many new masters I had not known.
finding a day where the crowds are not their own exhibit to contend with would be great, as many more trips to the Louvre are necessary!!
feeling culturally uplifted.
