The Renaissance lobby flowers. Tall flax with branches, berried ilex, red amaryllis, white lilies and green hydrangeas, surrounded by a fluff of red mesh fabric. The entire arrangement was about 7' tall.
Looking toward the Louvre, and the obelisk. Claude will have to tell us about the obelisk, as I have forgotten already. (Shame on me!)
The Louvre and I.M. Pei's glass pyramid. The Louve began as a palace in the 1190's and became a museum in 1793. Later I will show you some of what we saw there.
Looking down the Seine toward the Ile de la Cite, where Paris began in medieval times.
