A visit to the Louvre

I was thoroughly impressed with the Mona Lisa when I first saw her at age 10. Every time I went back I enjoyed looking at her, but this time, as I was with about 30 others who had never seen her, I decided to hang back and look at her from a distance instead of fighting my way through the throngs of people to glance at her for a second before getting pushed out of the way by some other eager tourist...hence why a picture of her is not included here. The Winged Victory of Samothrace always amuses me...it's sort of randomly placed on a stairway landing, and I think most people are expecting it to be housed in a sculpture gallery with a velvet rope around it telling people to stay away. At any rate, I rather enjoy my trips to the Louvre, although it is a bit exhausting. If you're planning on going, plan at least a full day - you really don't want to do much other than that in one day.
