    Leonardo da Vince wasn't just the artist of the famous painting "The Mona Lisa." He also studied engineering, math and science along with being a great inventor. I got the chance to go to his house in Amboise, France called Clos Lucè. It was pretty… whoa, back up! Didn't Leonardo da Vince live in Italy?

The French LOVE it! KFC and McDonalds too!" They were hesitant to pass judgement, but quite surprised by just how much love they harbor for good ole fried chicken, especially given how fresh and delicious the local fare is.
