The Louvre Pyramid Up Close
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…
