Going to Paris

Just jump over
Leaving Naxos

So there I was, climbing into the little plane (Dash 8) on the little airport on Naxos. Heading for Athens... and then on to Paris. The airport in Naxos is really kind of a family affair. Also you see that road in the picture? It has the only traffic lights on the island. They turn red when a plane is starting or landing.

Crossing the alps, not on an elephant

In Athens I had only a short wait, then I boarded a plane (a few sizes bigger) to hop over the alps. Another unspectacular flight. I thought of how fun it would be to have my friend Oscar with me... not. He doesn't like flying. I used the time on the plane to read in a trash SciFi novel. Time well spent. Only other observation: The seat space seems to be even smaller than it used to be. I don't think I could have opened my laptop, and it's 12.5" small.

View from plane approaching Paris

For once I arrived in Paris with daylight. No idea why I don't remember this happening again. Either my memory is warped, or it never happened before. Getting into town by train and to my friends' house was unspectacular, having done this trip already a number of times.

Morning in Paris

The next morning I went to town. Paris was its usual weird self. The weather wasn't actually that bad, coldish, but sunny. I walked around some, but due to my leg problems, I'm not to used to it anymore. So I spent some time reading in small cafes. Also had a good business meeting, because that's actually why I came here for.
