As I said, I took a short trip outside Paris to Versailles to visit my friend Anne, and of course to see the Château. It was essentially everything I'd expected it to be: grandiose, forgivably pompous, and undeniably French. I was able to take a fairly interesting tour, La vie quotidienne du roi (The Daily Life of the King), where I saw, among other things, the bedroom where Louis XIV convened his infamous waking-up and bedtime ceremonies, and the room from which Marie Antoinette escaped in 1789. I definitely plan on taking another, longer trip back to the Château in the future, so I only took a few random photos; it was a bit too cold to have my hands overexposed.

Kinara lives in Pigalle / Montmartre, so assuming I spend a bit of time around her neighborhood(s) this weekend, I'll hopefully have photos of Sacre Coeur, Abbesses, and just a few of the numerous sex shops typefied so well in Amélie. A Bientôt.
