Even though the picture doesn’t convey (my photography ), Les Invalides was a great building! Apparently, it is a prime example of French Baroque Architecture, although what I enjoyed the most was the wide open spaces around it and the walk along the Seine. (The picture is taken from the other side of Seine, from just across the bridge).

Did not have enough time in one day to go to the Louvre and look at the best small painting in the world, but I did have an excellent time looking around the area. To put things in perspective for myself, Louvre is the most visited museum in the world, and receives almost twice as many visitors as my hometown museum – the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
The weather was excellent (20 degrees, no sun, 0% rain, 100% gorgeous). Parisians must thank me for that

Constructed in 12th century, Notre Dame in Paris is one of the finest Parisian landmarks. Too bad that for one day that I was there, the inside was under massive renovation, but from outside, it was a splendid view! One of the more famous cathedrals of the world.
