Paris - Louvre

The race to see it all

As many Paris tourist, the Louvre is one of the top sites on the list. Today is our day to go. Gwen is not feeling great, so she is headed to the doctor today instead of with us. Rishaun has been doing a fairly good job putting up with all the museums and old churches, so I decided he could lead the way to whatever he wanted to see at the Louvre - and more importantly at whatever pace he wanted to do it. I think he had the idea that he was going to "see" the whole thing. And we did cover a lot of ground, several of the floors, but somewhere along the way, the magnitude sank in and we slowed down a bit...


Gwen saw the doctor and got a prescription - without being too political and without any insurance, it only cost 25 Euros (about the same as a copay back home). She joins us for a late lunch in the Tuileries Garden at a nice outdoor cafe. With everyone museum'ed out for the day, we head back to watch some games on TV. Rishaun got out of the Metro first and a little fruit stand vendor ask him to watch his stand while he went to the restroom - funny. We tried a new cafe that was supposed to have the games but didn't, so we headed for the Tarmac stand-by.


One reason to come back to home base early in the day was that we had late dinner planned with a river cruise (for Rishaun's birthday fortnight). It was a nice meal with very nice views...
