  1. Do you suppose you could arrange a little room for me at the palace if I ever make it to Luxembourg? I don't take up much space and it looks so lovely there.

  4. Léia, I do so love the architecture of Europe. The Grand Ducal Palace is a very fitting name – it's quite spectacular! The details are exquisite. Does this area receive a lot of lightning? There appears to be an abundance of lightning rods on the roof and even THEY are elegant!

  8. A grand and magnificent building.

    But why, may I ask, do the hoity-toity folks who, by hook or crook, rule over us, need such a place to lay down their pretty little heads?

    It seems that the more important one becomes, the bigger his house. But he/she hasn't become any bigger?

    Is it to “lord” over the people, or does he/she really think because of whatever combinations of events he/she is a political/religious power, he/she “deserves” such grandeur?

    I dunno. I think I'd be more impressed with a leader who lived in a more modest house. Like Harry Truman did after he left the presidency.

    Here endeth the sermon. Go in peace! 🙂

  9. «Louis» is learning much he didn't know about Luxembourg by visiting your blog. He wasn't able to visit Luxembourg when he lived in France, though he had wanted to do so. Thus your blog is very interesting to him.

  11. To live among the palaces of Europe must be an experience you will long remember.

    In America we have some big homes by some wealthy and famous people but the closest thing to a European palace is the Biltmore House in North Carolina.

    Biltmore House is a French Renaissance-style mansion near Asheville, North Carolina, built by George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895.

    It is the largest privately-owned home in the United States, at 175,000 square feet (16,300 m2) and featuring 250 rooms. Still owned by one of Vanderbilt's descendants, it stands today as one of the most prominent remaining examples of the Gilded Age.

    In 2007, it was ranked eighth on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

    Patty and I have been there several times. It is spacious and has many rooms. I like to walk through to try and imagine what it must have been like to live in such a place.
