JUNE 2018: PARIS

On our way to Botswana we stopped for two days in Paris. It was our first time there. We took a river cruise on the Seine, and visited the Louvre.

Of the obligatory sights at the Louvre was Venus de Milo, and of course the Mona Lisa. The latter was quite small, and there was a fence to keep the many visitors from getting too close. There was a crowd of people, all trying to see it or take a selfie with it in the background. I took the photo below with a telephoto lens, enhanced with Photoshop.

We also visited another very good museum in Paris which is housed in what was once a train station. It is the Musee d Orsay, which houses some very prominent impressionist paintings including Van Gogh, Manet, and Gauguin..
