Hall of Mirrors

Dad, walking through the almost empty room 
 Pretending we own the place

I'll never forget seeing the Versailles Hall of Mirrors in real life for the first time. I walked into the corner room, following my parents and my Dad turns to look at me and says "wait for it....1, 2..." and then I see it behind his head. The. Room. It's so beautiful and though it's cloudy outside every once in awhile we're blessed with a glimpse of sunlight breaking into the room and setting all the crystal chandeliers sparkling with rainbows.

Oh you lovely golden ladies. I will see you next time. I hope everyone had fabulous weekends, we definitely did! But more on that after tomorrow. See you then with the last of Versailles. Oh, sigh.

  1. Wow! Very impressive. I just read a wiki on the Hall of Mirrors. In the 17th century, mirrors were among the most expensive items to possess.
