Sight seeing Day 2 – Musee du Louvre, Notre Dame and Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise

Monday morning I seemed to be over my tummy troubles, so headed out what I thought was bright and early in an attempt to see the Musee du Louvre. It wasn’t to be unfortunately… altho I got there about 15 minutes after it opened, there was already a 3 hr long queue formed.

Oh well – onto Plan B: – a brief wander through Jardin du Tuilieres followed by Notre Dame, an open-top-bus ride and Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise following Nic’s suggestion.

All went pretty well – I seem to be somehow magnetically drawn to the Pyramide du Louvre, but somehow managed to draw myself away from it and get on with things. Notre Dame is amazing… I’d seen it from the outside before but not been inside… the architecture, the history and the spirtual’ness (is that a word?) of the place really hits you.
