Paris

 

(Obligatory Eiffel Tour photo)

(Bookshopping in le Quartier Latin led me to find this perfectly appropriate title, which will hopefully also help me to continue working on my French)

 

Versailles

(The rotating exhibit is currently one of contemporary furniture placed alongside furniture from Versailles in its heyday, and I had to include this tapestry that depicts cloning because, though unrelated to wine, it is certainly an interesting marriage of art and science – also along these lines, I learned that the theme of both the King and Queen’s antechambers was chosen to be a¬†depiction¬†of the god Mercury, protector of the sciences, spreading his influence over the arts – perhaps the Romans were on to something there… Something I plan to explore more!)

(the perfect sign that it is time for me to move on to my next destination!)
