A Good Anti-climax November 15, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in travel.
As far as I know, the strike is underway. From my trip to the Paris airport, however, you would never have known it. I was a short walk from the Air France airport shuttle near Monteparnasse. It left right on time, and was only about half full. The second pick up point for that bus is Gare de Lyon — it took about 30 minutes to get there; not out of reason for Paris morning traffic. The trip to the Charles de Gaul airport took about 40 minutes — almost the same that it takes on the train. At no place did I see any traffic gridlock, which everyone was predicting (oh, the horror stories).
I’m happy, but a little disappointed in the sense I expected to have an adventure. Of course, there is such a thing as too much adventure, and I still have 2 flights and a 2 hour drive ahead of me…
And the flight to here, Davis, California, was pretty easy too. Just very very long! Good night!
