You’ve been dreaming of this moment for years … perhaps a lifetime … and now you’re finally standing in the courtyard of the Louvre Museum surrounded by the world’s finest collection of art. There’s the glass pyramid by I.M. Pei, the soaring walls of the ornately decorated palace and, wait, what’s that? A HUGE LINE. Your heart sinks. You many be waiting, on your feet, for hours before you can even set foot inside the massive Louvre Museum. By which point, of course, those same feet will be asking for a break.
And what about those masterpieces like the Mona Lisa that you’ve been dreaming of seeing? It can take a few times turning the maps around and upside down to find the right direction to head in. Maybe it was the left direction?
