This last weekend I finally decided I needed to move my butt and go somewhere. A couple of friends and I decided to visit Vizille, a small town about 25 minutes away, with a chateau that doubles as a French Revolution Museum, and really nice park surrounding it. I won't bore you with the detailed history (i.e. I don't feel like Googling it) but, in short, it was the place where the 1788 tennis court meeting was held, during which and a meeting of the estates general was demanded, which subsequently led to the revolution, bloodshed, guillotines, etc. You get it.

Just for the record, she attacked me
