  1. This place looks amazing! It reminds me of old movies in which living and all the rest about royalty is described. Like the way their servant prepared food, to the ways they entertain themselves, and their guests. Those kinds of palaces had the most glamorous parties, and you had to be noble, to be on the list of people who can enter. There is an old comedy in which they describe their way of life but in a funny manner. It’s called ‘History of the World’. Also, they describe the other side, the poverty, and everything what was happening behind the great gate. However, it’s remarkable that those old buildings still stands to day.
