Memory Flashback Begin Page 49

Lourve Museum at Paris on 17 June 2006
I was not alone when going back to Rio as Steven's wife, Anna was with me, she is going to Rio for holiday. And since we have a day during our transit in Paris, we decided to visit one of the oldest, biggest museum in the world. It was crowded with a lot of tourists and students.

It is famous for holding several of the world's most prestigious works of art, such as Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, The Virgin and Child with St. Anne, Virgin of the Rocks and Alexandros of Antioch's Venus de Milo. And after the movie "The Da Vinci Code" show, this place became more famous than ever.

I personally love the Glass Pyramid more than any other painting inside the museum (well, so now can tell how much I appreciate art). We were there for 2 hrs plus then decided to leave there for some shopping but...... unluckily we met the heat wave, it was so unbearable that we decided to return the hotel early for the nice cooling air-con and a nap.
