Tick Tock Tick Tock

Usually when my sister and I traveled to any city steeped with a rich cultural history, we would include in our itinerary - a visit to any castle or palace which served as the official residence of aristocrats. The Chateau Versailles was a personal favorite of ours. It never ceases to amaze us with finely manicured gardens, its elaborate display of antique furniture, the grand ballrooms, the magnificent chandeliers and howard miller grandfather clocks. I observed that some of these clocks were still in minty working condition. Every time we found ourselves in Paris it was imperative that we make a side trip (by train) to Versailles.
