The first time we tried to go to the Louvre it was a free day and the line wrapped around the pyramid and way out into the square. Insane amounts of people, we almost got pick pocketed by a very clever, charming, dirty and disgusting guy, and then we got out of there fast. So here are some photos from this amazing place. Just please, don't go in the summer time on a free day. Just don't.

Eliot was excited too. It is enormous. The stairs and statues go on and on.

Explaining some of this to Eliot was tricky.

Our wedding invitation in real life! We had the image of this statue on our wedding invitation ten years ago.
