    sorry to read of Carson overheating, but otherwise great to see Mona Lisa and other photos in the Louvre. Yes, scaffolding sounds plausible…I am thinking of the Sistine chapel…! Very fine ending with Bordone, lovers (?), Linda. Still laughing.

      Hope everyone can take a joke at the end. Raining this morning so no Montmartre today. Les Galeries Lafayette for inside fun.

    Poor Carson. But he sounded resilient, like most young folks. Sp glad they got a close up of ML. It was jam packed our day there. And quite warm as I recall. At least we weren’t having to wear masks. Hopefully you’ll make Montmartre, my absolute fav spot, soon. Isn’t it nice wearing jackets in middle of summer. Same up here.😊

    Great picture taking today. Colors were vivid and content was fun and lots of imagination. Emily posed with Mona Lisa should be a keeper for their family album. That poor pizza didn’t stand a chance, looks like Carson made a full recovery. Looking forward to the Montmartre — that’s always a good day.

    I’m sorry the weather is not cooperating today but Les Galeries Lafayette is a fun and interesting spot. Hopefully you can do Montmartre another day.

    It looks like Day 2 in Paris was fabulous, in spite of a little jet lag and overheating. The photos of Le Louvre are magnificent and I so enjoyed seeing the crew taking it all in. And what could be better to top off the day then a little shopping. Yes, Emily, I saw all those Brandy Melville bags!👏 The adventure continues……looking forward to tomorrow’s post:-)

    Oh it looks lovely from the pictures on it’s website. I can also recommend Hotel Emile on the corner of rue Mahler and rue de Rivoli. It’s right across the road from St. Paul metro. The front rooms look out on Église Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis.
