A Field Trip au Louvre


For one of my MBA classes the professor brought us all to the Louvre where we were given free entry into the museum and a sort of scavenger hunt à la Divinci Code. We had 4 hours to answer all of the questions on the list which had us running all over like chickens with our heads cut off. This wasn't my first time at the museum but I never before realized how big it is! I'm just glad I brought comfortable shoes...

Now that you know the Louvre better, you have to listen to this podcast from Télérama: "Reportage : les passages secrets du Louvre". I got it from iTunes, but you should be able to find it on their website as well. The employee/director explains how many of the walls we see are actually fake. And maybe you saw the famous Henri IV door?

I'm definitely gonna have to check that out! Would have been cool to listen to before going; I guess it just gives me a reason to go back :)
