France day 8 of 17, the Louvre

Day 8 in France (Sept 9). What to feature from a visit to the Louvre? How about a beheading? Here is "Salome with the Head of John the Baptist" by Bernardino Luini.

We took a guided tour, which was a fast paced tour that allowed us to see the three most famous works, the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and the Venus de Milo. We didn't spend much time in any one place, but it was a good intro to the museum

Here we are with old what's her name. The Mona Lisa is in a temporary area while renovations are underway.

Honestly, what can you say about the Louvre? Every work is more stunning than the last.
This five-meter sphinx is said to be the largest outside of Egypt. My photo happened to come out well, so it made the cut for the blog.
Hotel sweet hotel. We crashed after a long day of walking.
