Zeer indrukwekkend! Egyptische zalen.Ingang piramide. Zo mooi dat je dat voorvoelde, door kreeg . Zonnetje erbij en via gereserveerde ticket ca 30 minuten wachten. Dan naar binnen en rechtstreeks naar de Egyptische zalen. Op weg er naar toe begin ik al zachtjes te klanken en geleidelijk aan komen er tranen in m’n ogen en eenmaal wat verder in de Egyptische zalen komen er tranen. Dan in gesprek. Ik begin te praten en neem het op. Een dubbel gevoel: ontworteld, alles uit z’n natuurlijke omgeving weggehaald, het hoort hier niet. Anderzijds het voelt wel dat de conservatoren het met respect hebben behandeld en ook met liefde hebben gepositioneerd. Het is zo dubbel. Wellicht dat ook veel meer mensen kennis kunnen nemen van het prachtige en magische Egypte, waarvan we nog steeds heel veel niet weten. Ben ook gaan zingen en geen mens die het opvalt zoveel lawaai is er. Ik betuig m’n respect en bied troost. Ik werd bedankt!

The Louvre is really worth seeing, huge and worth the price of admission. In my case, the reservation was absolutely unnecessary; there was practically no queue for reservations at free entry (even if it was only short). Everyone has to decide for themselves whether they want to commit themselves to this.

Wenn ihr das Louvre besuchen möchtet und nicht viel Zeit in Paris zur Verfügung habt, empfehle ich euch vorher auf der Karte rauszusuchen was ihr unbedingt sehen möchtet. Das Louvre ist riesig und es ist einfach sich darin zu „verlaufen“. Guckt euch auf jeden Fall die Dinge an, die nicht so gehyped sind wie die Mona Lisa, es gibt so viel beeindruckende Kunst dort. Wer bei einem Tagesausflug Angst hat nicht reinzukommen, weil er verbotene Gegenstände dabei hat: Am Eingang könnt ihr das Ganze abgeben und bekommt ein Ticket mit dem ihr das Ganze zum Schluss wieder abholen könnt (bei mir war es zum Beispiel mein Outdoor-Essbesteck).
