We are at Charles de Gaulle airport relaxing after the long flight over. In a short bit we head down over Africa to land in Douala, Cameroon. It is this second leg that is the hardest since they use older planes to go to Africa, there is that African smell that often floats through the air, and you are just plain tired. I just read that France’s new government is going to tax the rich at 75%, I am sure that will fix everything that is broken over here. Really.
Nice thing about this place though are the croissants and the coffee. Just enjoyed a fresh croissant with a double espresso and looked over at Philemon and saw he was doing the same. We are enjoying the comforts of Delta Sky Lounges this trip, it was worth the 90.00 investment. I cannot wait to sit in a clean, air conditioned room in Douala when it is time to leave. It certainly makes the drudgery of travel less so.
I did not get as much reading as I wanted since it was a red-eye flight. Only got one-third of the way through the book on the Trinity that I was wanting to finish. Perhaps on the way to Douala, perhaps not. My eyes are still shutting on their own accord and there seems to be no way to stop it. I am on my way for my 4th double espresso just to give myself a fighting chance.
