Visit to Versailles – Paris, France

Yesterday I went to Versailles with Micheal and Serena. It was tres grande. I guess it better be considering its one the the largest castles in the world. The Chateau de Versailles has more than 2,000 windows, 700 rooms, 1250 fireplaces, 67 staircases and more than 1,800 acres of park. I especially love that they are getting back many of the original pieces. Apparently, people buy them from auctions for large sums of money and then donate them. The murals on the ceilings and the furniture is magnifique. A fun day trip.

The internet guy taught Danielle and I some french the other day. I am determined to try it out with some locals so I may try it with our regular breakfast spot around the corner. I met Danielle who is this great girl who makes me laugh to tears. Her birthday is only one day off mine and we have so many other similarities it shocking. This morning, she walked out of the bathroom with the toilet seat in her hand. She looked really upset and embarrassed like she broke it but it was already broken when we checked in. I would have joked around with her to lay off the french pastries if she wasn`t only like 90 pounds anyway. I am crying as I write this because it is still so funny.

I think we should go back to the hotel now because Serena seemed a bit worried about the two of us out lost in Paris. We don`t seem to have much focus and hours seem to go by in minutes! Mom, can you believe that I have found some just as hyperactive as me? I am having an absolute blast here and again am just so excited to be meeting such amazing people.

Last night, we all drank heaps of wine and then went to this cool bar. Well, I think it was cool. From what I remember it was cool. Maybe I should go back again and make sure. I really should have been hung over this morning but surprise surprise, I feel just fine. The four of us went for breakfast at this quaint little pub and tried to learn some french because it seems like no one speaks English here. Apparently, when I drink french wine, I can speak french quite fluently…who knew?
