From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

Today is our third day in Paris, and tomorrow we take the high speed train to Annecy, near Geneva.

Yesterday was a whirlwind series of visits to the Eiffel Tower, Arch De Triumph, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Today we went to the Louvre. Except for the Louvre today, admission lines were too long, so everything was just seen from the outside.

I took the self guided Masterpieces tour at the Louvre, taking in the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo statue (poor armless lady) and several other works of art. A relatively painless way to see a lot in a short time.

Quite cool in Paris, temps in the low 60s, with light rain off and on. Annecy tomorrow is in the foothills of the Alps, so probably even cooler.

    Having just visited the DaVinci Experience at the Arizona Science Center, I’m a little jealous that you got to see the real Mona Lisa. Actually, I’m a lot jealous! Sounds like a great trip so far.
