The Louvre Museum & Parc Monceau

After the conference sessions on Friday, I ventured to a food court outside of the Louvre and then to the Louvre museum.
The museum was incredible, overwhelmingly big but I focused on Italian paintings and some sculptures...
Navigating the train is pretty intuitive, getting the hang of it pretty quick.

I decided to find some fruit on the way home, however, and got lost on foot (lol)...turned out to be good because I asked for
directions and had to take a route through the Parc Monceau, where I ended up doing some reading. It stays light out until like 10:30pm here, as you'll see in the pics I took of the park. Not enough time to put them in any particular order...
