European Vacation 2010, Day 23: The Louvre

18 November 2010

Though Kris and I still felt sick, it seemed foolish to spend our time in the hotel room. This was an expensive trip, and we felt obligated to get our money’s worth. Because we were feverish, we made a slow start to the day.

We left the hotel at 1100 for a second trip to the Louvre. Tickets were €9.50 each and easy to get, despite the crowds. In retrospect, we were foolish to pay €59 each for the Louvre excursion from the river cruise.

We spent four hours in the museum. Although we didn’t see everything, we saw plenty, including sculptures, Dutch masters, the apartments of Napoleon III, and more. It was well worth having returned.

We took the Metro back to the hotel, stopping for groceries at a supermarket. For dinner, we ate olives, sausage, bread, cheese — and grapefruit juice.

We dosed ourselves with medicine and watched episodes of Glee on the iPad.
