Post Hello.
Hello everyone! I am sorry I have not replied sooner because I have been so busy!

I was given the honor to actually teach some classes on Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and on 18th century fashion. It was hard work, yet it was so worth all the work- because I managed to make people interested in her.

I have just returned from a two week stay in Paris and I have had the privledge to visit Marie Antoinette's private apartments and Petit Trianon. :)

Welcome back Hellou! I'd love to hear more about your teaching work - what course were your students taking and what did your classes involve?

I hope you liked the private appartments. They make Versailles come to life. One sees how they chose to live out of the public eye, in quite dark and exiguous living quarters. Good to see you back here!

The experience - to say the least was incredible, and I hope I can have a similar experience again.

This is rather embarrassing- but for I moment I thought I would faint. :oops:

Thank you Baron. It is good to be back.


:)

Welcome back Hellou! Congratulations on putting together an interesting course and how lovely that you have been able to convey your passion to the students. I can only imagine how you would feel to experience Versailles and Petit Trianon, to walk in the footsteps of many before, and why that would make you feel so light headed. Good on you for working to make your dreams a reality. :angel8:
