Traveling: Le Louvre

Six hours. That's a long time looking at some art! But the kids were super excited about seeing what they've read about, so the time was well spent. We saw the Venus de Milo, Mona Lisa and Wings of Victory, naturally. But they were as taken by the lesser known works of art. The Napoleon rooms were stunning with gorgeous chandeliers. And we were all taken with the Lady of Shalott.
Tennyson wrote the beloved poem of the girl stuck in a job she was tired of who falls for the prince who rides by her tower. Leaving her job to go after her love, she drowns in the river.
