WoW overload

The Louvre.


Like Christmas shopping in a big mall on the last weekend before Xmas.  The lines everywhere!!!!  The crowds.  OMG.

That said, we saw a lot (too much) and are wiped...the Mona Lisa...packed out as usual....other Leonardos and REMBRANDTS!!!!!  OH, I love Rembrandt....love it so much...I was so excited.  We were thoroughly finished with the half naked wildly melodramatic renaissance religious and mythological stuff.  So done.

Like those old silents...wildly overacted.

Anyway....

It was good....and cold....and busy busy busy......

Paris.

Gotta love it.

Fabulous but exhausting!

I envy you - except for the lines and the cold. (I can get those here.)

Trish, that's about exactly it. Fabulous and exhausting.

Beth...yeah, you can do lines and cold in TO, no problem.

Can't wait for the pictures. Ah, memories come flooding of me peering over the tops of almost everyone else, to see the Mona Lisa. It must have been the day for shorter people, lucky for me!

don't go when they have special tickets then (like free from 6 to 9 pm, or free for people under 28, that kind of stuff. Crowds get even bigger there :) )
