Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
We were MIA for almost a week. Maybe you thought that Lars and I were traveling again, but no: I had a very nasty stomach flue. I was so ill that I didn’t have the energy to blog. All I did was resting and sleeping. And Lars had to take care of me and the household.
But now we are back! We left you in the Golden Courtyard Museums, where we first had a confrontation with the French version of Godzilla at the reception desk and afterwards had some linguistic problems in the Roman times. And our adventure wasn’t over yet!
I had forgotten to mention an important detail. Once we had paid our entrance fee and had left my precious backpack at the reception desk, the receptionist gave us a map of the museum. It was in French and I immediately asked her if there was an English version. As you may guess, the answer was a firm “Non!“.
Disappointment number 1: the museum is a labyrinth with many sub-levels, which are not clearly indicated on the map. We soon got lost.
Disappointment number 2: there are many floors where there are no windows or where the windows were covered. We were lost and disorientated.
Disappointment number 3: putting an arrow pointing down and another arrow pointing up just a meter from each other, really doesn’t help. We were confused.
Anyway, in the rooms dedicated to the Middle Ages you can see some fine examples of medieval civil and religious architecture.
