Location: The Louvre, Paris
Today is our last full day in Paris. We started at the Louvre and had to wait in line in the rain for about an hour. We ended only stayed a couple hours. It’s just too overwhelming. The obligatory viewing of the Mona Lisa was underwhelming and highly annoying due to the number of people who only want to walk around with a screen in front of them instead of actually experiencing the art. We had originally planned to have a picnic at the Eiffel Tower but the rain deterred us. I decided to hit up some vintage shops (no luck, but still fun), then we found delicious macaroons, walked through Luxembourg Gardens on our way to the Montparnasse Cemetery. Unfortunately we were disappointed to find the cemetery was closed. We finished the night at home with wine and cheese and bread and weird French tv. Tomorrow we travel to a campground in Grez-Sur Loing which boasts the “most beautiful forest in France”.
