Paris, September 21st

We went to Versailles Chateau today. We had to get a Metro and a RER train to get there. It was far away from Paris so it took us over an hour to get there. There were so many people and we had to queue for quite a while to go through security check.
The rooms were decorated beautifully with enormous paintings and chandeliers. The paintings on the ceiling were so detailed and elaborated. All of the doors were layered with gold. There were so many tourists in the rooms trying to take photos. It was not very enjoyable. Also the tour groups stop right in the doorways and a few times I found myself in a Brazilian tour group.
We went into the garden which was huge. It is separated into individual garden rooms. All of the gardens are very neat with hedging, fountains and statues. My mum loves gardens so we spent a long time wondering in the gardens. However we could only cover a quarter of it. We went home exhausted.
