The Louvre

It is a very true and accurate truism that you could never ever see even a medium-sized fraction of everything in the Louvre in a single visit, or even numerous visits. So the way Bill and Mabel and I did it was to each pick a thing we wanted to see, and then just enjoy seeing whatever we happened to see as we walked (and walked and walked) along to get to each of those things. This worked out very well indeed. Here are a few things--some super duper famous, some less so--that we enjoyed in our wanderings.
