Versailles Part 2

Vinci, the parking company, has financed the restoration of the hall of mirrors - they've finished half and are now working on the far end. The restorations is quite beautiful - there's blue up there - who knew. It was all brown before - now there's color! The marble's been polished, the hall's been re-gilded, the mirrors re-silvered, and a new parquet de Versailles has been laid. Completely breathtaking.
