I wanted to write about Louvre, but I skip it.
If I started to write about it, my report of visiting France will never finish.

I had to run to the station because I didn’t have enough time until the wait time with Ito-chan and Mike-san.
I wanted to eat lunch before I would meet them but I couldn’t.
I chose Louvre instead of lunch.
When I arrived at the Opera house, they were waiting at the entrance.
Ito-chan wore a colorful jacket, so I could find them easily.
The Opera House was built in 1875 by Napoleon III.
They needed for 15 years to build it.
It is an opera theater but it seems like a palace.
It is huge and it is decorated by many carvings, pictures, and many places were covered with gold.
So, many spaces of this building are NOT a theater.
They are stares, a lobby, a library, etc…
It was an amazing construction.
But I felt it was something wrong.
It is just a theater. Did they really need such gorgeous decorations??
We bought tickets at the entrance.
Mike-san found a ticket machine, so I bought my ticket there.
When I entered, a woman at the entrance prevented me.
I showed my ticket, but she hadn’t known the ticket of the ticket machine.
Mike-san explained about it, so I could enter.
I thought I had to buy the ticket one more time.
I don’t know how the Opera House was like.
I want to say the same thing one more time.
It is a theater. It is not a palace or a castle.
But it seems like a palace.
Of course, I love this kind of decoration but it is too much…
It is something wrong…
Anyway, we looked around the Opera house.
I like their library. It is the one what I want to get.
We could see the inside of the theater a little.
It was just my image of the opera theater. I saw this scene on movies.
There is a picture painted by Chagall on a ceiling.
Only the picture wasn’t like the Opera house.
