After walking around Ca' d'Zan, John and Mable Ringling's mansion, I got an idea as to just how lucrative the traveling circus business was. The mansion was just gorgeous. Only the 1st floor was included with admission, but those common area rooms were good enough to give me an idea at just how awesome it all was. I overheard one guide say that the chandelier in the main living area was saved from the Astor House Hotel in New York City because he knew an important historical piece when he saw it. The coolest thing I noticed was that the panels in the glass windows were all different, lightly tinted with red, yellow, blue, and green. Very impressive all around.
