The flow to Bordeaux

Thursday, November 19, 2009
Merignac, Aquitaine, France
This morning I was up and out of the hotel just after sunup for the drive to Charles de Gaulle airport. I arrived with plenty of time, and filled the tank with diesel before turning the car in. The flight to Bordeaux left at 1:10 and arrived on time about 2:30. On our take-off route over Paris, we again had a pretty clear view of the city. The Eiffel Tower is the easiest landmark to pick out, and from there one can locate the Arc de Triomphe, Sacré Cœur up on the hill and other landmarks.

In Bordeaux, I picked up another rental car and drove to the hotel where we will have services on the Sabbath and where the wedding will be celebrated as well . I picked up a bottle of wine (such wonderful choices here!) and drove to the home of Mr. Mrs. Audoin for dinner. Mr. Mrs. Bernal were there too, we had a very enjoyable evening, catching up on news, comparing notes about the recent convention we had in Normandy and planning for the future. French dinner can last quite a while, but several of us were tired from the day's activities so we finished the meal at around 9:00 pm, and went our separate ways; looking forward to meeting again soon.
