November 2000 - Versailles & St. Chapelle

Incredible gardens and fountains (as if we needed more water), Marie Antoinette's hamlet, and Louis IX's home for the crown of thorns and couple other bits

Versailles and some peasants Ceiling Elis would have loved this place Hall of Mirrors.  Good decorating idea for this narrow room, just ask your grandmother
