"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

Under the flashlights once again

Finally someone came up with the idea to lift the ban on photography, that was imposed some time ago, on the Salle des Etats, the room which hosts the Mona Lisa.
Most people didn*t care or didn*t know about these rules, or simply ignored them. Every tourist wants to get a shot at the famous lady after all, so there is no way of stopping them from taking out their cams or cell phones and start clicking.
Maybe they thought people would buy a Mona Lisa postcard at the store if they weren*t allowed to take pictures, but try to stop the willing! Sneaky tourists always find their way... So now things seem to be back to normal once again.
Oh, and someone forgot his shopping cart in the roman portrait gallery... I swear this place looks more and more like a shopping center
People-stalking under the pyramid

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
