And I gotta say, it was not my favorite. It was overwhelming and hot and I felt kind of lost among the kind of art I’m not crazy about and don’t much enjoy. So, now that I’ve said all those negative things I’ll say what I did like: the building, the gardens (which I’d seen before of course), seeing the pyramid from underneath, the Napoleon III apartments, the huge painting of the crowning of Napoleon/Josephine, the Michelangelo slaves.
Oh and guess what? I didn’t cry in any public places today. I’m gonna try to keep the count at two (I teared up at the post office in Reims the other day when the guy said my package was going to cost 123 euros, which, um, it did NOT). At least until Thursday at the airport.
