The Paris leg of my trip is over!
Although I loved my time in Paris, the weather was horrible. In any case, as bad as the weather was, the day I left Paris was even worst! I was at the airport at 6 am, and it took me 3 hours of standing in line just to check my luggage. It was pandemonium, nearly 600 people at my check-in counter alone, all of whom were very upset and trying to make alternative travel plans due to all the weather cancelations in Western Europe. Air France had called in the French army (all armed with rifles) to try and keep the peace! My knees are really swollen due to the standing, and will have to take Advil to reduce the inflammation. Here are some pictures from the last few days in Paris:
In any case, I loved Paris, but on to India! I’m praying that I won’t get sick, and that the next few days will be uneventful. I have to say, my first impression of India is that this place is chaotic, with no order!! Too many people, no personal space, and they do not follow any rules of the road. When my cousins picked me up from the airport, my first question was why the driver didn’t drive between the lines, the response was no one does? 😐
Also I have been reunited with Milena, I think after 4 days of an indian wedding, I’ve never seen anyone so happy or joyous to see me in my life!! I mean I know I’m insanely great company, but wow I guess those proposals of marriage for her at the wedding made her want to jet out of there!
Last note, you know you’re on vacation when you have no clue what day of the week it is.
