Today we gave the boys a choice of activities. A small group went with leader Chuck to the Louvre and got a glimpse of the Mona Lisa and hundreds of other famous works of art on the way to find this particular painting. The larger group with Ray & Mark to the French Military Museum which is housed in a huge set of buildings first built by Napoleon to house and take care of wounded soldiers. It now houses a priceless collection of military weapons, uniforms, photos, etc. dating back hundreds of years.
Also on this same property is Napoleon's Tomb housed beneath an amazing rotunda.
We also came closer to mastering the metro system. I was personally amazed that the metro was absolutely packed on a Sunday. Some of that could be because the Tour de France ended in Paris this evening. We didn't attempt to find it, but were caught up in the spirit of the event.
