Franco Fridays: The Louvre, Tuileries, and the Champs-Elysees

Our walk through The Louvre recommences with Napoleon III's very grand apartments.  Very grand.

I love wide, stone staircases.  They're just gorgeous.

We really enjoyed the Egyptian exhibit.

How is it possible to have hieroglyphs so small?

The main feeling I had walking through The Louvre was one of awe at how great God is in that He gives men and women the talents and creativity, not to mention the immense patience and discipline, to do such things as these.  It truly is amazing.

I think everyone agreed the coolest thing we saw that day was this column from King Darius' palace.  Think book of Daniel.  This was amazing.

How incredible is that?

So cool.

It was a really beautiful Spring day in Paris.

Because you have to take a picture of the Eiffel Tower
from wherever you are in Paris...

 Tuileries Garden

And that?  That's just a little souvenir Napoleon brought back from Egypt.  That man may have been a little crazy.  Or maybe a megalomaniac is the correct word.

Our team had been out really late each night since we arrived, so Wednesday we called an early night to rest a bit.  We walked down the Champs-Elysees and went back to the church for the night, where we enjoyed a delicious dinner prepared by some of the ladies in the church.

Vive la France!

There were actually some activities I didn't take pictures of on Wednesday (gasp!), so I raided KJ's iPhone photos to bring you a glimpse of a few other things.  Wednesday morning the ladies of the church made us a delicious breakfast, and we passed out French gospels in the neighborhoods around the church.

And that's a wrap for Wednesday.
