Fezzik In Paris

Two Americans, three cats, and too many places named "de Gaulle"

Prior to the current sudden invasion of tourists (spending Christmas and New Year in a hotel is popular. Who knew?), we went to Versailles, which was both good and bad; the good came from the fact that, due to it being the weekend before Christmas, it was essentially empty, while the bad came from the fact that the arguably-primary draw is the garden, which obviously wasn’t in bloom, given the time of year.
