More Paris...

I loved the Seine! It was so pretty. All the bridges were so neat. This one had the big N for Napolean. Can you imagine being so important that you could order having your initial put all over like that? The building is La Conciegerie which was a jail at the end of the 14th century. During the Revolution more than 4,000 people were help prisoner there (including Marie-Antoinette) and about half of them were guillotined. This is the fountain outside the entrance to the Louvre. The entrance is in the glass pyramid.

What? I'm not tired, let's go see some old stuff inside the Louvre!

Inside was neat. From this center you can go off in 4 different directions. There are three wings with 4 levels each of art! You really could be in there for days and probably not see everything. There was also some neat shopping including a Starbucks and an Apple store. My Dad was excited to stand outside the Apple store and get a lighting fast connection on his iPhone :)

I'm so glad you went to Paris! Everyone should get to go once in their lifetime...isn't it amazing that even their old jails looked so neat?
