Traveling in Style

November 01, 1987

Art Buchwald's "The Six-Minute Louvre" reminded me of our trip to Paris in 1962 with our sons, then 13 and 14. My husband and I took them to the Louvre and, while our youngest, guidebook in hand, looking at the "Mona Lisa" would not believe that she and "La Giaconda" were the same, our oldest came running to us, shouting, "I know where the exit is!" I think he saw the "Venus de Milo," the "Winged Victory of Samothrace" and the "Mona Lisa" in five minutes flat, beating the record by one minute.
