France Photo of the Day: What’s your favorite fairy tale?

France Photo of the Day: What’s your favorite fairy tale?

Traveling in France is really a lesson in perspective on fairy tales.  You keep realizing, over and over, that what seems like marvelous impossible things to us (Americans) as kids (castles! rose-covered cottages! sumptuous gowns! gorgeous bejeweled slippers!) was actually just realistic background detail.  Only the characters were made up (and some argue not always entirely).  Contemporary fiction.

What’s your favorite fairy tale?  Is there one that could live here?

At Chenonceau.

It’s Bastille Day.  I wish I was seeing the fireworks at the Eiffel Tower today!
