Greetings from the Biltmore

We are howling watching SNL after a spectacular day mostly at the Biltmore Estate, the Vanderbilt family home and village built to support it, which currently has a Chihuly exhibit that ends next weekend. We had lunch there, toured the enormous mansion as well as the extensive gardens, then had Ethiopian food for dinner at Addissae and drove back to Mocksville. More pics when I am more awake but I had to share the staircase at the Biltmore which is a reverse copy of the one at the Chateau de Blois which we saw earlier this month, and the library, and some Chihuly:
