Litratong Pinoy: Eksayted (excited)

Halos halikan ko ang sahig ng Louvre Museum no'ng una akong pumasok rito. Hindi ako makapaniwala na mabibisita ko ang pamosong museum na ito sa Paris at makakaharap sa tunay na buhay ang mga obra na nakikita ko lang dati sa mga libro. Lalo na ang sikat na larawan ni Mona Lisa na iginuhit ni Leonardo da Vinci noong 16th century. Sa aking eksaytment, naiwan ko sa tren ang aking nabiling sapatos (huhuhu!).

Louvre Museum, Paris

I almost kissed the floor of the Louvre Museum the first time I set foot in its lobby. I could never believe that I was actually visiting the world-famous museum in Paris, and that I'd be able to see, face to face, the works of art that I only saw in books---especially the famous Mona Lisa, a portrait painted by Leonardo da Vinci in the 16th century. In my excitement, I left behind in the train a pair of shoes that I just bought.

Kung di po ako nagkakamali, isa ito sa mga settings ng "Da Vinci Code."

Ang ganda ng pagkakagawa, modernong moderno!

ahahaha, ngayon ko lang nalaman ang istorya ng naiwang sapatos...sayang naman, maganda pa naman ang gawa dyan. Talagang nakakaexcite ang pagpunta sa Louvre, di kami nakapagtanghalian nung pumunta kami pero sige pa rin sa paglakad at pagclick ng camera...Happy LP!

Thess said...

Pareho tayo ng excitement na naramdaman sa museum na yan! Pero buti na lang wala akong naiwan na shoes sa train he he

Happy LP sa iyo, sister!

nakarating ako sa louvre nung gagawin pa nila itong pyramid ni Pe (ba ang pangalan niya?) pero i went back there about 2 times kasi gusto ko talagang maabot pati yung mga annexes. kasama ko yung nanay ko kaya mahina siya sa lakaran. After my stint up north sa france, bumalik na naman ako just to got to the Orangerie... ewan ko pero connected pa yata ito sa louvre! hilo! but loved it!!

ian said...

Sorry to hear about your shoes but I can't blame you for the excitement you felt being at this storied place. I'd love to visit this place someday myself. Great photo!

Carnation said...

hindi pa ako nakarating dyan. so far sa van gogh museum pa lang doon sa netherlands.

spiCes said...

ay ako rin cguro mapapahalik kapag nakatapak na ako diyan!

Pinky said...

Sobrang aliw din kami nang mapadpad sa Louvre pero medyo nagulat kami na maliit lang pala talaga ang larawan ng Mona Lisa. Ka-excite nga talaga! :)

PS Sayang naman ang sapatos!

cakesandladders said...

naku! pangarap kong mapuntahan ito at sigurado hanggang langit ang excitement ko kung sakali!

Dennis Villegas said...

wow Paris...I can understand your excitement...even though i haven't been to Paris.
too bad for your lost shoes ;-)

bertN said...

I'll be honest with all of you, the first time I went to the Louvre Museum I forgo lunch because I wanted to see the world famous Mona Lisa....it was a letdown for me dahil hindi ako napaihi ng makita ko yung painting LOL.

Maybe I am just a moron unable to appreciate the significance of everything historically, socially and culturally unique and significant around me.

luna miranda said...

LOL bertn, i wanted to write about my disappointment when i saw the Mona Lisa, but I didn't want to spoil it to those who haven't seen it yet face to face. i agree with you...hindi rin ako naihi e(hahaha)...i even wondered what the fuss is all about!:D

luna miranda said...

Paris is one place that we should all experience at least once in a lifetime, Dennis. I still feel bad when i remember the shoes.:D

luna miranda said...

cakesandladder, exciting talaga ang lugar. salamat sa pagbisita mo.

mirage2g said...

@bertn, ako din di naman napaihi, pero excited pa din kahit paano lol. (natawa ako sa comment nya!)

luna miranda said...

hi, Pinky! yon din ang naisip ko...ang liit lang pala (hehe). at sa totoo lang, mas na-mesmerize ako ng iba pang paintings d'on. sayang talaga ang sapatos!:D

luna miranda said...

hehehe nakahalik na ako dati sa bato, Ces. handa na sana akong humalik kaso pinigilan ako ng kasama ko.:D

luna miranda said...

i'm sure magaganda din yon, Carnation. i've seen some of van gogh's paintings at the MMA in new york a few years ago.

luna miranda said...

thank you, Panaderos. sana nga makakarating ka rin sa Louvre.

luna miranda said...

salamat sa pagbisita mo, Familia Kuletz.

luna miranda said...

makakarating ka rin sa Louvre, Ian. at susulitin mo talaga, i'm sure.:D

luna miranda said...

naku,bernadette, i can only imagine what your mom went through walking in the Louvre. kahit gusto pa nya maglakad, di nya na kaya. i almost gave up when my talampakan started to bleed, but it was a personal challenge (hehe). Ieoh Ming Pei is the architect of the louvre pyramid.

luna miranda said...

salamat din, leah.

luna miranda said...

it was in September 2005, Sidney. i hope to revisit Paris someday.
