Louvre let down
Ah Paris! The city of lights, the city of romance. Home of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, minimal resistance in the face of adversity, and the beret. Ah Paris! Yes, Astragal took time out for a quick sojourn to visit our cousins across the Channel. And a trip to Paris is not complete without experiencing the majestic union of the Louvre’s home of the Royal Palais and I M Pei’s glass pyramid. But imagine one’s disappointment when visiting the museum to see Pei’s once proud innovation being overrun by impish children and leaking from the roof. Oh the ignominy of it all – Pei’s finest hour being reduced to a giant playground and a rusty old bucket. Quelles Fromages!
