I’ll be honest, a good portion of today was spent entirely on the train to Paris (three hours). In the morning, we essentially woke up, had breakfast, and headed to Lycée Kastler from which we went to the train station. BUT, once we finally got to Paris, we were able to see the Louvre, and of course the Mona Lisa, which was definitely overhyped. I preferred the Islamic art section, and the art from Syria, since I’ve never had much of a chance to see art and sculpture like that before. My favorite thing though was riding up the river Seine and seeing different sections of the city from the water. Even though it was just the river and not open water, the wind, the boat and the water made me wish my dad was with me to experience the city with me.
