    I love your capture,specially in B/W it really looks wonderful. Wish I could tell you the story how I searched for this entrance into the museum for about an hour, walking around and circles not knowing how to find it. LOL …..found it in the end . Nobody would help me because I can not speak a word of French.

  • Hihi, I didn’t know either, it was by reading on it that I learned lol! We didn’t have time to go inside, good for us :)
    I hope you enjoyed your visit. This is place is so huge, it must take a whole week to see every pavilion.

    Thanks for your great comment, take care :)
