Paris, Day 13 -- A little story about the Mona Lisa

Well, I'm still getting over this cold.  Feeling a little better this evening!  But I've been laying low.  In the absence of new adventures, I'll share an interesting article about something that happened almost exactly one hundred years ago: the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre!

Her theft, her recovery, and the subsequent notoriety are all discussed in this article.  Enjoy!  (And thank you to Carolyn P. for sharing it!)
