louvre was rather fun… lots of nice exibitions… we just surfed through most of the building scanning through different items and stopping for a few nicer things.. even that took around 6 hours… luckily enough, my feet went numb after the 3rd hour so it wasnt that bad.

although most of the museum is within old and preserved castle rooms, a small part of the museum was newly built. to be honest, louvre was great but i do prefer viewing art in minimalistic, simple environment like this which doesnt conflict with the art.

we came across a really thirsty and hungry cat in the middle of nowhere… someone probably abandoned it… so we went back a kilometer to the closest town were a nice lady said she would take care of him/her

the king’s brothel… or castle for their favourites would be more appropriate.

a long drive out of the city took us to this really nice castle built on a bridge across a river
