We spent at least two days visiting this wonderful Louvre, looking at it from Google reminds me why we needed more than one day and of course we didn't see it all.
View from the Louvre of the Pont de Tuileries.
Same bridge from the road outside the Louvre.
View of the Pont de Arts.
Musee du Louvre from Google, what an enormous building!
It was fascinating watching these artists reproducing some of these masterpieces.

Babar the Elephant went to Paris... was the reply... so to Paris we went :-) I've just looked closely at his face in this photo, what a poo-face he has! That was probably because we wouldn't pay the huge price to go up the tower! Did Babar go up the tower, I will have to check :-) we still have all the books upstairs.
Same spot from Google today.

Oh my gosh... there is still scaffolding in this same spot 41 years after we were there... different scaffolding so guess the original problem was solved.
Back on the Metro to the Youth Hostel after a busy and exciting day.
