Weekly Photo Challenge: I’d Rather Be…

Venus de Milo
Location: The Louvre, Paris, France

On our third day in Paris, we went to Musée du Louvre (The Louvre) located on the right side of the Seine river.

It’s one of the largest museums in the world with an area over 650,000 square feet. Its 300 rooms have 35,000 exhibits on display from prehistoric times to the 21st century. These include the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Code of Hummurabi, and Winged Victory.

The Louvre Crowd

The lines were long and too crowded to offer a moment for reflection and even take good pictures, but there was no other place I’d rather be especially on a rainy day.

Our guide said it would be impossible to cover everything in one visit. The best strategy then was to prioritize what you wanted to see and plan on coming back someday.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pedestrian

Latin Quarter, Paris

Location: Paris, France
Our tour guide, who hailed from the South of France, told us that Paris is considered one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful city in the world.

I couldn’t agree more. It has much to offer to anyone, but to fully experience it, you must take it slow like sipping a good wine. In other words, you must proceed with the intention that you’d be coming back.

What a better way to do that than to sit outside a cafe and watch people as the locals do. You can see them, in different shapes and colors, as they come and go about their business, immersed in a world of their own making. What’s interesting, though, is that before you can pass judgment on them, they’re gone and a new group of folks appear.

The above picture was taken while having lunch at the Latin Quarter which I’d consider the Berkeley of Paris. It’s dominated by university students and intellectuals with lots of places to eat and to hang out. Situated on the left side of the Seine River, it’s a good spot to indulge in people watching.
