Monday morning we took the 7:15 train so had to get up early to get from the hotel to the train station.
211.38 miles (340.18 kilometres)
2 hours and 15 minutes! These trains travel at 180 mph and go under the channel.
Love the bright yellow color.

The room was really nice even though they were working in the hall and stairways to remodel.
When we finally got checked in we got on line to check times of the places we wanted to visit.
We knew the Effile tower could be seen either day.
It was good that we checked. Our plan was to go the the Louvre on Tuesday, it would have been closed.
|What beautiful blue skies we had!|
I did some collages on Print shop to highlight our visit of the Louvre.
|Wonderful Egyptian wing|
|Too many paintings to show. I love the vibrant colors (especially the reds) used in these paintings. |
Check out the tiger under the saddle.
The much admiried Mona Lisa was behind glass and a center of attention.
To really see the Louvre you need 6 days, one for each of the wings of the museum.
Tomorrow we visit the Catacombs and the Eiffel tower. Hope you will come back next week and visit.
