Another view of the Pyramide at the Musee du Louvre. We met a friend of Miss Kenju's from the US at the pyramid that day, and toured the museum with her. She was an art major, so she added an interesting perspective to the tour. We got lost, though.
I hope that I don't offend any French people by saying this, but the Louvre maps and printed materials are not easy to understand, even if they are printed in English too. We asked so many guards where to find a certain Egyptian statue, and everyone we asked gave us a different answer. Except for the two statues above, and the Mona Lisa, we saw precious little else because we were always trying to find which set of stairs (and there are many) led to the section we wanted to see.
The next three photos are of Notre Dame, the famous cathedral; outside, the doors, and the rose window. It is a beautiful place, but it has many rivals in Italy, and by that time they had all begun to run together in my mind.
