Tour Report: Maison V.

I have to apologize for not posting for so long. My wife and I were on our summer vacation. 10 days, almost 3.000 kilomters of driving and exploring a lot of locations together - some even accompanied by my mother-in-law. But those are stories for some other time, since with my tour reports I've not even reached the end of last year's summer vacation, so we I have to pick up where I left off in my last post a little more than two weeks ago.

After arriving at our friend's house where we were going to stay for two nights, we had a nice barbeque together and a little of a housewarming party - our friend had just moved into the house about two weeks before.
The next morning, we had a good breakfast before we left for our tour of the day.
The first spot we had planned was an abandoned neo-baroque mansion that had been built in the early 1900s after the original estate house burned down.
When we got to the place, it was obvious that renovation had begun at some point. We had a short talk with the neighbors who were nice, but told us that the owner probably wouldn't allow us to take photos. We walked around the building and found a broken window on a side that was out of sight from anyone, so we quickly jumped in.
It quickly became clear that the renovation had stopped for quite some time. The amount of animal droppings on the walkways was a strong indication that no workers had been in there for some years.

We explored the entire building and after we got out, took some shots in the park and went back to the car. As we were packing, the neighbors left in their care and gave u a friendly wave as they drove off.
