Especially when it's a short 2 hour 'Chunnel' ride away.
And it was A M A Z I N G !!!!!
We headed straight for the Louvre.
It happened to be free admission day at the Louvre.........so we saved some money, but it was also packed! Hallways & stairwells, as wide as they were, packed full of the French masses & tourists from all over the world. None of these pictures show how crowded it was.
I'm a bit of a germ freak, so I was trying to mentally prepare myself for coming down with the swine flu after this.
One could probably spend a month in there & not see everything. We hit the must-see's......
...such as the Venus de Milo.
The Mona Lisa, bien sur!
What you can't see is the mosh pit we had to maneuver through to get this close.
The interiors of the Louvre are works of art in themselves. So freaking cool!
Parisian Mars at the Arc de Triomph.

Then we ended the day at the Eiffel Tower. Oh la la!
