The entire Centenary in Paris group visited the Palace of Versailles outside of Paris on Thursday afternoon. Students toured the grand chateau in the morning, and two groups stayed in the afternoon to explore the extensive grounds and gardens.
Some of Bruce Allen's Bohemian Artists students and Steve Shelburne's section of Daily Bread made a special stop in Marie Antoinette's Hameau (hamlet), a miniature village built for the queen on the grounds of Versailles as a rustic "escape" from palace life. Our art students continued to sketch their way through France, and the Daily Bread students were able to observe that the Hameau is still a working farm, with abundant vegetable gardens and even some farm animals!
