We visited the Château de Versailles on our last day in Paris on recommendation of a few people we've met along our way. It was a bit novel to see the massive palace that grew out of Louis XIII's 1624 hunting lodge, but we found the tour to be mostly hype about a taste for expensive things, and not at all an interesting history lesson about the politics of pre- and post-French Revolution that we were expecting. We should have looked ...

... of the palace where they begin you literally can't see where they end. That's beyond the horizon folks. Top that sorry old small Rose Garden. Of course being the king of (during his reign) the most powerful country in Europe meant you had to impress when you entertained. Well boy, howdy, does it ever. Our limited time didn't allow us to even scratch the extensive surface of the beautiful flora, sculptures, and fountains that cover the visible horizon. ...
