what is this?

Christophe Van Hulle on June 23, 2010

I still have to tag the pictures and map them, Laura, but it is an outdoor swimming pool of an extremely rich guy (Hearst) back in the thirties who built himself a castle, "european style", complete with the interior of original, medieval (really, I'm not kidding) european cathedrals and the like. The swimming pool looks ancient Greek. Ridiculous if you ask me but really worth the visit if you're in the neighbourhood (between LA and SF).

Cheers, Christophe
