Riding Like Royalty

Paris trumped us again.

For just a little extra oomph in the morning metro ride, the French RER system in Paris has refurbished a train to resemble the iconic extravagance of Versailles. Funded by the Palace itself, this transformation is a little bit ridiculous and a little bit amazing – much like it’s royal origins.

You have to hand it to them for embracing their sordid history and twirling it for the 21st century.

If every train was re-envisioned to the tune of royal architecture – like say Buckingham, Alhambra, or the Forbidden City – perhaps we could spend our daily commutes channeling our ancestors’ historic aspirations for glory. Just a thought.
