Paris Diary part 8

Day 10
20°, sunny.

Lily & I woke up early and went to Versailles, which is very easy to get to from the city and a nice place to spend the morning.

We saw most of the house in the morning – including the Grand Galerie, the Parade Apartment, the King and Queen's Chambers, Marie Antoinette's Apartment, the Royal Chapel, the Congress Room and the Opéra Royal.

After a nice lunch, we went to the Grand Trianon and the Queen's Hamlet. Even the smaller out of the way cottage was a mansion. The way these royals lived while their people were starving, it's no surprise how they ended up.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
