France - 2002
I took a mighty fine trip to France for two weeks in October, 2002. Wandering through Paris, Nice, and Lyon, along with day trips to Monaco, Cannes, Versailles made for quite a trip and over 500 pictures. These pages exhibit a couple hundred of the best ones for your viewing pleasure. You'll note that I took pictures of lots of things I thought were interesting, or historic, or something.
Warning - All the way though I'm writing captions from memory, so please take them with a grain of salt.
The Louvre was a very impressive place, though I guess different than I expected. Certainly a giant place; would take two days of power viewing to see it all, more like 3-4 for most people. These pictures are difficult to organize, but I've tried to lay them out according to art type.
The rest of the city was just as interesting, so I had to hit
all the tourist sites:
Modern Art Museum (Pompadu)
Nice Area / French Riviera
