My friend taught me about the subtlety behind the design of the Louvre's famous glass pyramid. A shame I knew nothing of it when I was actually there. It's striking to see the entire Louvre structures in person - not in how they contrast each other, but rather how they seem to oddly complement each other.

I've heard whispers that they've begun the installation of LED lights in the framework of the pyramid. Since our apartment was an 8 minute walk away, we went at night to see the courtyard. No lights, but you can see the Eiffel Tower in the distance. No Da Vinci Code moment, but it's very beautiful.
