Todays big adventure was the Louvre, we knew it would take up the majority of the day so we didn't plan on accomplishing much else although we had dinner plans with Romy and Alanna at 7pm.

We had thought that since we couldn't get keys until 2 pm, we would ditch our heavy suitcases and see some of the city. We abandoned that idea after going around in circles in the Gare du Nord and then discovering it would cost a fortune to check our bags into a locker, got a cab to a spot ...
