You knew it was coming! Of course, a trip to the Louvre is mandatory! We were excited to see the Mona Lisa, and surprised to find NO line-up at the Carousel Du Louvre entrance (at the inverted pyramid). I knew how small the painting really is so I wasn't shocked when I first saw it. In fact, I was more interested in the crowd around the M.Lis rather than the painting itself. And I was even more happy to discover other paintings at the Louvre I didn't expect to see.
