Our trip to Paris (2)

This time some pics from Versailles
In this hall were this picture was taken there were huge paintings on both sides of famous battles. Of course only those battles that were won by the French. There is not so much glory in the ones you've lost. You can see how huge these paintings are in comparison to Noriko and my mother in law.
This one was taken at the Grand Trianon, also belonging to the grounds of Versailles

Near the Grand Trianon you find this countryside farmerhouses which were chosen by and designed for Marie Antoinette the wife of Louis XVI. Both died in 1793 under the guillotine after the French Revolution started in 1789.
These places were very photogenic as you can see.
Maybe next time I'll post some more pics from the inside of the main palace
