Finally, a gallery where you can chill out and actually take your time to look at some art! Next time, I'll try not go round the gallery backwards.
Yesterday, we waited an hour and half to be granted entry into the worlds most visited museum. Safe to say, it was chaos. The visit involved further queuing to see the Mona Lisa (which I viewed from afar) and basic things like food and water. Thankfully, I have a good zoom on my camera otherwise the Mona Lisa would have remained to have appearance of a stamp. I'm glad that we tackled the Mona Lisa as the rest of the experience was enjoyable and felt remarkably similar to an actual museum. It seems that most tourists fight their way to the Mona Lisa then forget about the rest of the exquisite collection. After all, there is plenty to see.
My favourite part, probably seeing a few of Da Vinci's other paintings and a few Rembrandts. Definitely a once in a life time experience because I definitely don't want to go through that hassle again!
Yesterday, I visited the Centre Pompidou, Paris after a long walk around the city including sites such as Notre Dame and Arc de Triomphe. The architecture of the building was very unusual. Inside, out springs to mind with the air con and plumping on the outside, including the escalators.
Although stifling hot, the green house-like escalators were followed by a cool exhibition of Roy Lichtenstein. This exhibition had a great layout, easy to follow minus the incredibly annoying visitors who insisted on taking photos with the artworks.
Definitely a worthwhile visit.
