paris and london must have been so awesome! your pics are great (i've been checking in all week). funny, my best friend has family in london and is going there in 3 weeks...they are going to go into paris for one day too.

i don't think i knew you could take photos of the mona lisa - it's much smaller than i'd expect it to be.

Yup Paris and London was crazy I loved it, I can't wait to go back. I have family in London.

Yes the Mona Lisa is small, and they have it blocked off and about 6 feet away, so you can't go right up to it at all.
