I discovered something very interesting about the Louvre, it's open late on Friday nights and it is (by Louvre standards anyway) remarkably empty later in the afternoon and evening. So I got to wander around everything and queued for less than five minutes to get in.

The guards were even turning a blind eye to the flash photography so I might have managed to get some decent shots of the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. It's a wonderful museum when it's not full of people.

I loved the greek and Roman statues and the Dutch painters.

Today I toured the Catacombes and found that I did not have a nervous disposition or heart trouble. It's odd but seeing that many human remains laid out seems to make it almost part of the scenery.

I might be up for climbing the Eifel tower tomorrow.
