Passage du Louvre
I picked up my five-year-old daughter from school and headed out for a Paris adventure. I was hoping she had the physical stamina on this sunny late autumn day.
First we walked from school to the Métro, which whisked us directly to Métro: Opéra. We then walked slowly, checking every little detail interesting to someone who is three feet tall.
Next stop was my favorite udon spot. We patiently waited for a seat at the bar and finally sat down and tucked into piping-hot bowls of thick udon noodles and soul-satisfying broth. Feeling satiated, we continued along our journey, with a stop for ice cream, of course, and then to the Louvre.
The passage way between the Métro: Palais Royal and the Louvre always delights me. It’s here where we stopped and admired the gorgeous light streaming in from the other side of the passage. We finished by joining the masses for a view of the Mona Lisa.
Technical Details: iPhone 4, Hipstamatic app, John S Lens, Ina’s 1969 film, no post-production.
