So as I'm watching the movie I blurt out, "Is that the Palace of Versailles?"
To which he replied, "yes."
Yes, that trip wasn't worth much to me...until now. Now I can look at such a beautifully done costume drama re-enacted in its historical location and say, "I've actually been there." Yeah, that's kinda cool. I am, of course, going to continue to try and forget the part about getting lost on the subway on the way there.
