Jed and Sam wait to check in at Charles de Gaulle.
Jed and Sam disappear into a tunnel on their way to security. Hopefully Jed did not put his knife, dagger, or huge rocks into his backpack after I checked it the night before!
So, after Jed and Sam left, what did I do on the only day that I have ever spent in Paris by myself? I had a three-hour lunch in a café with another AP grading friend, Heather.
I then met fellow exchange teacher, Kristen, for a drink later in the afternoon before catching the train back to Montélimar. That means that in two days in Paris, I saw a friend from Tennessee, one from Pennsylvania, and one from Illinois. What a small world!
I wonder if the kids back in the neighborhood who draw on the sidewalks with chalk will grow up to do that for a living? Pretty cool!
