The gardens of the Versailles palace are enormous. They are also very beautiful. I had a ticket with access to everything, so I just walked into the garden. The two nurses from my university had bought the cheapest ticket, which only gave access to the palace, so they could not enter. They called for me to wait for them and told me that they needed to buy tickets. I walked out again (my ticket was a full day free pass, so I could come and go as many times as I liked) and told the young French woman at the gate that "I am with those two, so I will be back again soon". She said: "Ah, you again!" and laughed at me when I went back in a few minutes later.

We walked around in the gardens for an hour or two. We got to see some water fountain show synchronized with music and many other nice things. We were asked by an older Japanese couple to take a photo for them (they seemed to have the same heuristic as me for choosing people to help you with photos). I asked them to take a photo with my camera in return, so we could have a photo of all three of us too.
