I was told by multiple people that CDG was a horrible and confusing airport, and I have no idea why. I was a little confused how to get from one gate to the next, but I asked for help in broken French and got very clear and polite instructions on how to proceed. Then after going through security I saw Dior, Hermes, and Prada stores!!! Who can complain about that? I spent a lot of time in Hermes just dreaming- shocking how I felt much more at home in a store I'll never be able to afford than in the entire country of Zambia. Haha. Then they had a little Ladurée filled with beautifully colorful and overpriced macarons. If they offered free wifi I might think this was the greatest airport ever.
Analee took off for Portland and I am heading for London in an hour. I did not miss the irony of traveling from super poor Zambia to the most expensive city in the world. I am super excited! I am meeting Becky for a long weekend, and I'm pretty sure she's already got plans for us tonight! I'll have to take a disco nap on my flight to heathrow after my exhausting red eye from jo'burg. (remember when I was 40 years too young to use the phrase "disco nap?")
One of my goals is to set up mobile blogging from my phone so that I can post some pictures, because these wordy things are boring! Hope you kids are having fun!
