Just once per year for a weekend, the Élysée Palace, private residence of the President opens up for public viewing. And so this saturday, my friends and I stood in line for eight hours (yes. eight. whole. hours) just to be able to take a walk inside the most prestigious French castles of all.
As you may have noticed, I have a thing for château's, especially French ones. They always tell wonderful stories of history's great civilizations' rise and fall. And somehow, you are always reminded that history...always repeats itself.
