    Lines written after surviving the Louvre:

    Father and teenage son
    Trying to look at the Smile manqué
    Frustrated by a thousand tourist frowns
    Why?

    • Oh yes, museums are great places to people-watch, the more famous the better. Never have I sensed greater relief than exiting the Sistine Chapel and leaving the masses with their craning necks behind.
