The Louvre Pyramid Up Close

2 September 2009By 38 Comments

The Louvre Museum wasn’t in our list the first time we visit Paris.  Not until I read and watched the Da Vinci Code that I realized I missed my chance of a lifetime to see the world’s largest museum.  I thought I would never get any chance so I indulged in watching the film over and over, lol!  I’ve been held captive by a notion that travelling for pleasure is not meant to travel the same places all the time.  Even if I want to visit the same place again, it’s unlikely to happen.  Maybe because there are so many countries, so many places to visit eventually.

But anyone who have been to Paris would definitely say it’s one of the must-visit again places.  And that’s what we did nine months ago.  Our second trip to Paris gave us the chance to visit the Louvre Museum.  The pyramid was not that astounding by day because of the absence of lights.  It’s part of the entrance to the museum and believe me, anyone can afford to get inside for 9€ – 14€.

With quilt jackets on, bonnets on the head and winter gloves covering the hands, these people were having a good time in the museum area.  And we were one of them, though, you can’t find me in the pic above because I was behind the camera.  It’s somewhere around here where Tom Hanks did the last scene of  The Da Vinci Code, but I was wondering how large the crowd that day they managed to shoo away, hehee…

    Hi Marlene,

    Not seen you for quite sometimes in my blog. By the way, I like your new blog layout. Simple yet user friendly.

    Oh this one is a museum. Was it shown in the Da Vinci Code? It surely looks beautiful to me. I always dream of travelling to Paris one day. Do they speak English?

    • Marlene says:

      Hi Willie, it’s because of my job. I can’t have enough time to bloghop yet.

      Yes, it’s shown in the movie – part of the interior and that pyramid. Keeping dreaming, you’ll be there someday. Sure, they can speak english.

  4. Wow, the Louvre Pyramid! I would love to visit that place :D

      A weekend in Paris is not quite enough, but to be in Louvre for two days perhaps.

      Btw, I have a problem opening posts on your blog. I couldn’t get into the single page. The message says that the browser has got a wrong command or something.

  9. and Dan Brown said that the pyramid was made of 666 glasses and he is wrong. It’s supposed to be 673 or something pieces of glasses

    But I’d love to go to Paris one day :D

      I should have counted it myself, hahaa.

      It was just a myth that he integrated in his book. I don’t think he didn’t know the truth, though.

      Sure, I highly recommend it.

    Hi Marlene, I read the comment no 11 and your reply there. I thinks that you have to review your comment policy. I thinks that quantity is much better than quality in blogging. Because google always monitor that how much traffic on your site or blog. I am giving a reference Pls check its comment policy http://www.infectedbybugs.com/. I am very much inspired with it. I apologies if i say some thing wrong.

    • Marlene says:

      Thank you for referring the site. I still go for a quality content with quality comments, too. Quantity will some come when my blog becomes popular.

      I will look into this later.

  17. Marlene says:

    You have the same question as Flashpoint. I’m referring you this post for my answer.

    May ask, can you give me a link back from your site? I presumed the answer is no because I can’t leave my link on your site since it’s not a blog. Hope this will answer your querry.

  18. Marlene says:

    Paris is, yes, absolutely.

  19. Marlene says:

    Thanks, I thought so it is.

    Btw, I might add you and others (who owns a non-blog site) to my blogroll for being a frequent commenter. I realized I owe something from you, guys. ;-)
