Sunday in Paris

We  have had a busy day today.  We started the day at Versailles, the home of the Louis Kings of France.  Versailles is one of the largest palaces in the world and also the home of the Hall of Mirrors, the historic site where several peace treaties have been signed.    We then proceeded by train and subway to the Place de la Concorde and to the Louvre, the largest art museum in the world.  We are resting and will soon be heading to the Champs-Elysees and the Arc de Triompe.  Our feet are tired, but we are trudging on. The weather is beautiful, although more rain was predicted.  Please notice in the second picture the girls are eating bread and pastries.  We are eating well every place we go.  It is a good thing that we are walking 5-6  miles each day.
