View From the Gates
We made a point of getting to the Louvre early so we could spend a good part of the day taking in the sights. The thing about the Louvre is that it's immensely large, but also incredibly complex to navigate. It's like those videos where you walk up a set of stairs and seem to wind up on the same floor. Don't ask me to explain, but for those who have toured this museum, I know you feel my pain.
Despite having a map in hand, I was constantly asking for directions and still found myself getting lost. Despite my poor sense of direction, I did get to see more stunning art than I could have asked for and was lucky enough to have an afternoon date with Mona Lisa.
Here's an afternoon view of The Palais Institut de France, taken from the exit gates of the Louvre.
