lucky you! when I was in Paris we tried to get into Versailles but it was closed for filming!! I was kinda mad cause I wanted to see the inside. but my friend was so sad because Sophia Coppila (sp?) was like an idol for her and being so close, yet one security guard awasy from meeting her was painful. we did have a nice time looking around the garden though. I had some great apple gelato!

I went there last summer! Did you go to Marie's house? It's soo pretty! And the painting of Napoleon crowning himself is really impressive in real life. I want it on my wall.
