That said, today is Day 3 in Paris! AND I WENT TO THE LOUVRE.
...i have so much more to say about today, but I WENT TO THE LOOOOOOUUUUUVVVVRREEE.
I have taken copious pictures, as you'll see in a second. All the art. So much color, so many different techniques, so many classics, so many wonderful surprises, and exactly one creepy as hell mummy.
After this, we walked through the Tuileries Garden, which has, I swear to you, the squarest trees I have ever seen. This led us to the Musée de l'Orangerie, which contained absolutely massive paintings by no less than Monet.
We decamped to the hotel, where we ordered a nice lunch from room service. I napped (again... I've been ill; while I'm definitely getting better, I was still pretty fatigued after all of this), and then we got cleaned up and went up to the VERY TOP of the Eiffel Tower for a champagne toast! While the weather didn't cooperate (it was really cloudy, so our view on the top level was occluded), we both took a moment to reflect what we were experiencing. It was a beautiful little moment.
We also thwarted all pickpockets again, which we considered a solid victory!
We came back to have a drink at Le Bar, which is French for "the bar", which is the bar in our hotel. It's a bar. It is, I admit, a really NICE bar, though. We took lots of photos, which normally one does not do in a bar.
Finally, we retired to the room, and are just about to snuggle down for a nice night. The Eiffel Tower is still lit up. Life is really pretty great.
Tomorrow, ADVENTURE!! :)
