I got up Early took a long walk through Paris about 9am and just had a great time taking in the city. I got hopelessly lost for an hour then got my bearings and found the Louvre which is the most impressive castle I have ever seen both in style and size of the building. When you approach the entrance you are almost completely surrounded by the two enormous wings off the main castle. The wealth that produced this building is beyond my imagination. Of course it was closed due to it being a Tuesday......that is France.
I went to the Arch de Triumph and took a peak a Notre Dame. For the most part I was just exploring Paris getting my bearings. I was not brave enough to try the subways or buses. As far as museum visits they were all closed and I will quote the King of France when he wrote two words in his diary the day the Bastile was stormed.......Today, nothing.
