Victory at Samonthrace (in the Louvre)

The real Moulin Rouge in the district where artists like Henri de Tolouse Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, and Claude Monet once walked the same cobblestone streets and created their famous artworks.

Melissa getting her portrait drawn by one of the many local artists in the famous area known as Painter's Square.

At the Louvre....yipee! And yes, we did go straight to the Mona Lisa first just to make sure we got to see the famed artwork in person (if you didn't already know, it's not very big) There were lots of amazing artworks and artifacts in the Louvre (which by the way was once the royal palace)

The Venus de Milo also in the Louvre. Wow!
