After visiting Versailles I can understand why France has had not one, but around 6 or 7 revolutions in its history. The palace is huge and the grounds are humongous. And the gold, oh the gold, is everywhere.

|Looking out over the grounds.|
|This clock would tick off any peasant enough to start a revolution.|
|Martha and I in the ballroom.|
|Carved stone ceilings and walls.|
|The two story cathedral in the Chateau.|

We were so exhausted by the end of this day. A lot of walking had been done. I had my first real crepe down the street from Versailles. It was a ham and cheese crepe. We ate at an outdoor cafe next to a McDonald's.
