The Louvre

One of (or THE?) most famous museums in the world. Literally acres of art go in all directions. Mobs of people make a bee line for the Mona Lisa, passing by more interesting pieces. Two Vermeers take my breath away. The great hall of Rubens is remarkable in its own way- am I the only one who feels that the inclusion of at least one naked breast in every painting feels gratuitous? How many days would it take to see the entire collection? More specifically, how many hours can I take before my eyes glaze over with art numbness?

But, it's relatively early in the day. The mobs have yet to reach some of the less travelled corners. And the light coming in is beautiful. If you want to see more go here.
