|A typical hallway in the Louvre –
the sheer volume of artwork is overwhelming.
We spent 8 hours just hitting the highlights.
|Da Vinci’s masterpiece, Mona Lisa smiling
from afar (yes, we did make it to the front row
after a while). We had a brief bomb scare in
this room, everyone was ushered out in brusque French.
|Winged Victory, the 2nd
century marble sculpture
of the Greek goddess, Nike.
We kept getting lost and
ended up at her intersection
about 6 times. She could
have shown us which way
to go, but hey – no arms.

proportions of the Venus
de Milo. She’s 6′ 8″ tall!
