Musée du Louvre

Yesterday was Louvre day.  We spent many hours walking around - a small percentage of it lost.  Dear Louvre,  Please work on your map.  Thank you!  

Here are just a few of my favorites:

Winged Victory

Easter Island head - Isn't he adorable :)

Three Graces

 Reminds us of Sid from the movie Ice Age  hee hee

Beautiful ceiling

Like I have to tell you...

Venus de Milo

Goya - Portrait of Mariana Wald

After hour long walk around the museum we went to Angelina's for some wonderful hot chocolate.  It's as thick as molasses and is served with whipped cream.  A meal in itself.   The chocolate is not too sweet, it's just very rich and major yummy!

Thanks for the trip through the Louvre. Is your son enjoying his stay? What kinds of things do teenage boys like to do in France?

Isn't it great how you can take photos in the Lourve? I found out how the Lourve got its name and the photo you show for the opening of this post is of one of my favorite statues there, which we heard all about too, on our private tour of the Lourve in September.

Hope you're still having fun and can't wait to see and hear more about your trip.
