Nick vs. Louvre: Round 2

I decided to have a rematch with the Louvre, seeing as how I only saw about a quarter of it in the first 3-hour dual we had. This time I spent about 4 hours and probably got to about the 2/3 mark, maybe. One thing that helps is that the cards on all the paintings are all written in French, which does me no good. This is helpful, though, because if I could read the cards I never would have made it off the first floor of the first wing! Here’s some of my favorites from my 2nd time around.

I think my favorite was the re-creation of Napolean’s Apartment.

Besides this apartment, here are some of my other favorite pieces.

This next one I found pretty amusing.

After round 2, the result, not surprisingly, is Louvre: 2 – Nick: 0. Maybe next time.

Also, see my first attempt at seeing the Louvre.
