Checked into my Airbnb and grabbed a quick jambon et fromage sandwich. Then I headed over to the Louvre. It was Friday so the Louvre was open late. I highly recommend visiting Friday evening as there were about three people in front of me in line. The Louvre is big and overwhelming, but I did my research ahead and had a focus on French art for the most part. I did find myself distracted by the beauty of the building as it once was the home of French royalty.
