I arrived in Paris from Geneva, and had the first evening by myself, so decided to wander around along the Seine, and then head to the Louvre after sunset. It rained a bit when I was travelling from Orly airport to Paris, so there were plenty of puddles. I took the cover photo above from a bridge, then spotted a few puddles down by the river, and decided to head down there to see if I could get some reflections.
After a quick pizza I headed over to the Louvre.
I headed inside, and started to wander around. I had heard that the Louvre was big, and the buildings looked pretty sizeable from the outside, but I had not quite realised how big it actually was. The Louvre is huge. You turn a corner, expecting a small room, and a whole new museum opens up.
Exhausted, but quite content, I headed back to the hotel after only having seen what must have been a fraction of the artwork on display at the Louvre. I had an early start the following day. You can see the Paris dance photos in the “Sous Le Ciel de Paris” blogpost.
