The Mona Lisa is so much smaller than you think it is. While I was walking through the Louvre looking at all the fabulous art, I wondered what makes this painting so special? There were many other pieces I thought to be more grand and more beautiful. I guess I'll have to do a little reaserch on that one
After the Louvre we walked throught the Tuilleries Garden and ate a baguette at an outdoor cafe. I had to keep telling myself that we were really there. It seemed like a dream. I giggled a little when I saw a lady in high heels walking a little poodle just like here. It seemed like such a cliche.We then went on a boat tour on the Seine River. It was amazing. We saw this monolith
We decided we had to see it up close so off we went. My favorite shot of the Eiffel Tower was at dusk taken from the Arc de Triomphe. So beautiful!
That was just the first day. I think Paris deserves more than one post, so more tomorrow.
