The Louvre and Montmartre
We approached the entrance to the Louvre from the back door, I think. We did the quick and dirty tour seeing the three famous women of the museum, the Venus de Milo, Winged Victory and Miss Mona. Enigmatic smile? We think not. Family opinion says too much analysis and she's just smiling.
Montmartre is a bit of a trek north but still fun even in the gray and the cold. Mandate issued by the mother was crepes for lunch, followed by shopping and walking all afternoon, including staged can-canning at the Moulin Rouge. Too tired to face a restaurant, we dined in the room. Not enough can be said about the french baguette and its magical properties.
