Many things to love about the Lourve….

It’s home to an amazing collection of art work and archelogical treasures. It’s easy get there by Metro (get off at Musee du Louvre and NOT Lourve-Rivoli). It’s also easy to buy tickets at the ticket vending machines. It’s like buying movie tickets at the vending machines of American movie theaters. I spent half my Saturday inside the museum and I know I only covered a fourth of the collection. I need to come back.

I filed a report from the 11th arrondissement….it’s on l’Op�ra Bastille…what do you think?

In addition to interviewing 19 people in my shoddy French, for this story….I also flagged down fifteen people for another survey:

“Si vous �tiez am�rican, pour qui votierez-vous: Kerry ou Bush?

  • Kerry: 10
  • Bush: 3
  • Neither: 2

I wonder how people from the other arrondissements responded.
