versailles


While in Paris we took the RER-C line to its last stop: Versailles, palace of kings, city of nobility.  The thirty minute train ride and the hours of walking were well worth the beautiful sites we took in.  After shuffling through the palace, we had lunch at a cafe, walked along the canal, and hiked to Marie Antoinette's domain - the Trianons and the Hamlet.  Aside from the Hall of Mirrors, I preferred the Marie Antoinette section to the main palace.  The space was so peaceful, and it was easy to see how somehow could retreat so far into this space that they would completely forget all the issues of the outside world.  P.S. Did you know that Marie never actually said "let them eat cake?"
