The Louvre is one of the most famous museums in the world, and its popularity is evident at midday when the line to buy tickets snakes all the way around the square. Children are enthralled by Mona Lisa as soon as they enter; other paintings are incomprehensible to them, but sculptures are a different story: they recognize all sorts of Greek gods and goddesses (Zeus, Athena, Aphrodite, Eros...). They tell me excitedly about their stories, which they learned from books about magic. When we enter the Royal Jewels room, we're both dazzled by its luxury.
