It Begins! Paris - Day 1

We're finally here!!! For those of you who do not know, today marks the beginning of our vacation in Pairs. We arrived in CDG Airport this morning at around 8am Local Time. After sitting on the run way , after landing, for about 25 min we were finally placed on a bus to take us to the terminal entrance (Took about 30 min later, P.S. CDG is HUGE!) But, no biggy we're on vacation.

After making our way through customs we finally met up with Lynn and Joanna (Referred to from now on as L&G). Unfortuently there trip was not as trouble free as ours. Air France seems to have lost their luggage, and worse, does not have any idea where it's at and no one has any energy to actually do anything (Think New Yorker attitude with an accent) .

Once we realized that it was absolutely pointless to stay at the airport our only course of action was to head to the apartment and hope that the luggage shows up...eventually

Upon entering the apartment I'm immediately reminded of how much Americans take little things like SPACE from granted. Once again I find myself in a world where Mini-Me would feel a little claustrophobic, LOL. Needless to say I feel like a bull in a china shop most of the time. But I'll get used to in a day or so. I will have pictures to emphasis's my point shortly.

Needless to say, after a restless night sleep and running all over the Airport trying to helping L&G find their luggage a name was definitely the first on the list.

At the moment, I have only a few pictures which I can not post right now. Of Course I left my link cable back in the states. Don't worry, I WILL get a cable tomorrow and post all the pictures we have accumulated so far ( and even some prior to the trip when Daniel stop by Richmond).

Well thats all for now, its 1am, and with the exception of a 1 1/2 hour nap I have had very little sleep for the past two days. Will give a better entry tomorrow.

-Peace from Paris (literally white flag peace).
