Well, I took the Eurostar to Paris late Saturday night, and have been having a lot of fun here since then. I had a large amount of trouble finding decent internet service on Sunday and Monday, but I think I’ve got it sorted now. I’m paying through the nose for it, but hey, I’m in Paris.

On Sunday I visited the Louvre which was utterly wonderful and fun and inspiring. I tried to see all of it in one day – I think I saw maybe 80%, and I was only able to do that because I strolled past all the halls full of wooden-looking medieval art, and the halls of Egyptian art – never really cared for that stuff much, there’s no life to it. The Greek, Renaissance, Post-Renaissance and Paleolithic stuff was much more interesting. I got as close as I could to the Mona Lisa (about 15 feet away) and was rather unimpressed. But then from that far away, you might as well just look at a print. The one that really got me was the sculpture “Psyche Awakened by the Kiss of Love”. I spent hours sketching that one.

Anyway, I have a whole bunch of photos and sketches from the Louvre to post, but I forgot my camera. I’ll put them all up in my next post.
