In last week's installment, I mentioned that I spent two days at the Louvre because only certain sections are open each day. That's right, it is that big.
The first day I went, I was with several friends and the main thing we wanted to see was the Mona Lisa. We did eventually see it, but after fighting the large crowds. I remember being surprised at how small the painting really is. One thing that still blows my mind is that not only were you allowed to take photographs, but you could also use flash. What?! Using flash is not good for artwork. At all.
