Paris First Day and the Louvre

Our flights were on time and we successfully met up and we found our driver to the hotel. Our hotel, the Saint Domonique is a very small boutique hotel in a nice section wallkable to the EiffelTower. Our room is small even by French standards but free wifi and minibar and a friendly staff make it a nice place.

Went to the Louvre while waiting for our room to be ready. Liked the paintings including the girl with the smile but the sculpture even more. The most impressive thing is this immensive building was a palace for the King. 

Paris is a beautitul city, green and cool Which I really appreciate coming from the desert.  Off to dinner tonight and Eiffel Tower tomorrow before getting train to Normandy
