Champs-Elysees to Louvre

Finally at the Champs-Elysees
We are here at a cafe on the Champs-Elysees!

Lovely dinner - 1.00a.m. Saturday, 23rd June, 2012, Champs-Elysees

On my way to the louvre through Champ-Elysees at around 8.15a.m. on Saturday, 23rd June 2012
Finally I am here at the louvre!

It was saturday last week and it seems like yesterday when I was standing face to face with Monalisa along with several other admirers of hers - the atmosphere was simply surreal. Early saturday morning after taking the train, I arrived at Charles de Gaulle station from where I walked along the Champs-Elysees. I was at Chmaps-Elysees the night or should I say very early around 1a.m. of saturday for a very late dinner with friends and it was full of life and vigour - and here it was in the morning, very quite and peaceful. I cherished every second of my walk from Champs-Elysees to louvre humming along to 'Les Champs-Elysees...' by  Joe Dassin. And finally the moment I had been waiting for - Face-to-Face with the Monalisa!!

I like the signpost - Making sure admirers reach Monalisa
Face-to-face with Monalisa!

Listening to the audio as I meet Monalisa heightened the excitement
What a great Artist was Leonardo de Vinci

The excited admirers!
