On my way

Paris, Île-de-France, France
I'm off on a last minute trip to Switzerland, Belgium and France. This came about when several needs coincided and I was able to get a low airfare to Europe. I will be visiting Church members in the three countries, speaking in two services, helping a young man prepare for baptism, and performing a wedding. This will happen over the course of 11 days.

I left yesterday afternoon from Cincinnati. Mr. George Evans was kind enough to drive me to the airport for my 18:30 Delta flight to Paris. The flight was uneventful, and I slept about four hours which is quite good. There was an older American couple in front of me, flying to Paris to see their daughter dance with a Russian dance company. Following that they will travel to Normandy to see the D-Day sites. They asked me if I'd been there, and I said I had, and that I was sure they would find it moving, and well worth the visit.

The horizon forward of us was just turning from black to dark blue as we crossed the coast of France. Paris had low cloud cover when we landed.

We came into terminal 2G, the brand new one that is prepared for the double-decker Airbus 380. One can see that the jetways are installed on two levels to allow boarding and deplaning on both decks.

After walking here to terminal 2F I should have about an hour's layover. I'm enjoying a cappuccino and lots of Evian while I wait.
