Although I am not really a museum person, I enjoyed my visit to the Louvre in 2011, in large part because I learned so much during the tour. Our guide, the lady pictured above, proudly told us that the Louvre houses the best collection of French art — and somewhat rued the fact that many of the museum’s visitors are only there to see the Mona Lisa (Italian) or the Greek sculptures. She spoke with the eloquence and intimate knowledge of someone who loves what she talks about, and I thought: for a person who loves art, the Louvre isn’t a bad place to work in at all.
