~~~~

Exquisite is the only  way to  describe the interior of

some of the European Historic places we visited.

The Palace of Versailles being one such example.

Whether the ceiling artwork, or…

 

 

…this craftsmanship fifteen to twenty feet above our heads.

Even though we had ‘priority access’

to various tourist attractions, for example, 

The Vatican City, Schonbrunn Palace

and Versailles Palace… 

I felt negotiating crowds like this,

while trying to follow a guide,

was sheer madness.

 

However as we departed and saw

the numbers waiting for access,

I learned to appreciate our priority access.

We all came away from…

our visit to Versailles Palace…

totally in awe…

of the opulence and to a person stating…

 

that it was no wonder that there was

a revolution in France with

so much wealth belonging to so few.

On a global scale not much has changed I guess.

It must be innate in the young of all species

to annoy their mother.

This protuberance high up on the wall

indicates a ‘Red Light’ area in Pompeii. 

 

his view of the Palace of Versailles

meets the rectangular criteria.

 

Can colours be interspersed

among each other?

 

These ‘vividly colourful’ decorations are

the best I could for fluorescent.

Week 119

People

Over the past twelve months, or so,

we have seen people doing many things.

Sun-baking on a stone beach at Nice.

 ~~~~~

Many of us grumble that our early entry to

the Palace of Versailles was not that privileged…

until we completed our tour and sighted

the line of people waiting to enter.

 

More people at Menin Gate Last Post Ceremony.

 

 By comparison, to some of the European sites we visited,

London’s Trafalgar Square

was almost empty.
