Paris Trip Day #3

Today we are headed to the Paris Flea Markets in the morning and then Versailles in the afternoon. I was very disappointed that I didn't get much time to browse around the flea market longer. We needed to meet everyone back by a certain time so we would have time for Versailles.

Versailles was beautiful but very expense to see everything that was there. The Palace of Versailles was the official residence of the Kings of France from 1682 until 1790. It was originally a hunting lodge, built in 1624, by Louis XIII. It was expanded by Louis XIV beginning in 1669. He used it as a little lodge as a secret refuge for his amorous trysts with the lovely Louise de la Valliere and built a fairy tale park around it.

We ended our day at a mexican restaurant(yes mexican in France). Food was okay I like ours better, but they had ice in our drinks. I missed ice so much while we were in Paris. Such a little thing we take for granted. Off to bed early for us tonight. We are headed to the Loire Valley in the morning.

Bon Soir
