Versailles. How do you describe that which is beyond description? That’s what I’ve been trying to figure out for the past 10 days. We visited the Palace of Versailles on January 17 (2013) and I’m still trying to wrap my head around what we saw. The Palace of Versailles is the epitome of opulence and a lesson in what can go wrong at the same time, while it has stood for centuries as a showcase of French history, art and culture.
