Paris-Part II

We saw too many beautiful things in France to put them all in one post. So I'm going to do multiple posts on this beautiful city. We were fortunate to get to some of the museums during our time in Paris. We went to the very famous Louvre museum where we saw the Mona Lisa and were completely overwhelmed with art and sculptures. The first picture is of the outside of the Louvre museum. We also went to Les Invalides which is a tribute to France's history/armies. The tomb of Napoleon is also here (the third picture). Finally, the last pictures are of the Arc de Triomphe which Napoleon had built to honor the victories in their wars. If you look closely in the pictures you can see that Mark was standing in the middle of the Champs Elysees taking these pictures. Don't worry- he didn't risk his life. There were places to stop in the middle of the road and take pictures without having to worry about being hit by a car.
