Versailles Vous etes belle! ( you are lovely in French) courtesy of Google translate!

Hey all,

Tomorrow is my first Uni exam ever....scary! I hate having to find my seat, it's so annoying! Anyway today I don't know why France was on my mind......wait I do it's because I am currently studying about the Inter-war Period. Anyway I was thinking about Marie Antoinette so I googled the palace at Versailles and wow! As soon as I looked at the Palace I knew there would be some kind of Greek related statues in the Palace because let's face it they
usually are everywhere. So here are some stills from the Palace, the Gardens and Greek statues. This is definitely going on my Bucket List!
You have to admit the French had style ;)

The statue at the top left is of a Nymph, the next one is Castor and Pollux ( they were the twin brothers who were the brothers of Helen and Clytemnestra. The story goes that they shared the same mother but different fathers. Pollux was immortal and Castor mortal when Castor died, Pollux asked Zeus to let him share his immortality with his brother and to keep them together. awww how cute) and the last one is Demeter.

That's it for now.
