A day after Giverny, we visited the Louvre Museum to "scout" the area. We didn't go in but simply took pictures of the magnificent palace buildings and its surroundings.
The famous "pyramid" in the middle of the courtyard (Cour Napoleon). Made of metal and glass, the structure was designed by a Japanese dude named Ieoh Ming Pei. It was commissioned to him by then President Francois Mitterand in 1984. The pyramid serves as the Louvre's main entrance.
As we roamed the gardens, we witnessed a barrage of army jets and planes flying above us. I thought it was the beginning of World War III lol
Next post: We actually enter the Louvre. Hurray!
