My European tour Pt. 27 Louvre Museum, Paris France

Hello, comusta, Renxkyoko Iglesias musing  !

There are tons of current issues I’d like  to write about, but I promised  I would  wind down my European travelogue, so here it is, as promised.

My lovely, regular readers know my family is  building a vacation house at Boracay island in the Philippines. We thought construction would be finished in March  but  a super storm happened, unfortunately . It is a 3 level house with 7 bedrooms, and yes, we do plan to rent out the whole house or individual rooms to tourists.  Although it’s now  almost 99% finished, we still need to furnish it, and you know, we have no investors, everything is out of pocket,  our pockets,  and I guess, we are already at our limit, as far as finances go.

That’s how it looked  in November.  ( That’s my dad in yellow shirt )  I wish I could show here some recent photos , but our aunt is so computer -challenged she doesn’t even know how to email  pictures. * shakes head *

We’ve already sent  5 boxes of stuff to the Philippines, via Door to Door delivery. (  dozens of towels, Ikea curtains, chafing dishes, etc. … omg, bottles of wine ! !  )

We originally planned to go to Japan and some Southeast Asian countries , but I guess that ‘s cancelled  now.  I’m very disappointed.  Oh, well.  It’s okay….. I don’t  think a one-month   Philippine vacation is enough, anyways….. there are so much to do there and so much to see, and I’ll   take tons of pictures.  Oh,  by the way, my brother and his girlfriend are coming too, but they are going to France first, and from there,  fly to the Philippines.  We don’t know  if we’ll get to meet up with them, though.  We hope not. My mother said it would be troublesome to take care of 2 more people. Ha ha .

Speaking of France……Paris  is the last leg of our European tour.  We’ve been to Nice, Carcassone, Poitiers, Bordeaux, Amboise, Avignon, ( all in France) and I’ve already  posted some pictures of Paris.. and the photo below of the Eiffel Tower.  I’m posting it again because I look very happy  in it.

So without further ado….

The following photos are those of The Louvre Museum’s .

Below is the back entrance. The size of European cars fascinates me because my eyes are used to big, American cars.  Guess what,  Mini cars are already being advertised on TV here in the US. I just watched  a commercial  for a Mini a while ago,  a cute yellow one.

That triangle structure looks kind  of  out of place in front of the imposing  palace.

Now for the awesome art objects inside Louvre.

* stares*    I’m wondering about the pose.    Or maybe not.  Maybe that was just the way they posed.  Cool.

There’s a lot of movement in these later Roman statues. Gorgeous.

You can feel the movement of those muscles.

This is all for now, folks.  Next post is still Louvre Museum. The place has thousands of art objects !  Stand by for the Mona Lisa !

Oh, yeah, Manny Pacquiao , a champion Philippine boxer just won over Bradly.  We watched it a few hours ago on paid HBO special.  Okay, I didn’t watch it.  I don’t like boxing.

So, bye for now. Good day and PEACE.
