day 2134 – musee louvre

another day in paris and it was a museum-filled day. the morning was reserved at louvre walking around the exhibition for a couple hours. my favourite was the french paintings mainly because it brings back so much memories of when i studied their art history. the afternoon was spent at the centre du pompidou. it wasn’t as interesting as it was promoted. the said views from up top wasn’t good either because of the muggy weather and i got rained on pretty hard since i didn’t even have a hood

day 2133 – versailles palace

this place is so beautiful no wonder it’s a hot topic for all tourists. it was a huge palace full of historical paintings, monumental ceiling murals, fancy decor surrounded by a vast garden. i read online to go early to avoid line up outside and it was right – this was the crowd first thing in the morning. it was a hot day and the train ride was a brutal forty minutes there and back with a jam packed cargo and no ventilation
