Louvre Map

I went to the Louvre one of the days while Hannah was at work. I didn't get to see too much of it. What I saw was pretty nice. But, I prefered the Musée d'Orsay. It had a much higher concentration of the kind of stuff I enjoy. Additionally, I had no trouble leaving the Musée d'Orsay. I am pretty good with spatial relations. The Louvre is not. I should have just back-tracked to get out of the Louvre. But, I figured I may as well see more stuff on my way out. Getting out of the Louvre took me about 40 minutes of going up and down staircases I would rather not have had to use, running into dead ends that were put there just to annoy me, following the sparsely placed (and often blatantly wrong) Sortie signs, and seeking the advice of the also sparsely placed (and often blatantly wrong) attendants. If you are not spatially minded, I highly recommend tying one end of a ball of twine to the ticket booth and only going as far as your tether will take you. 8^).
