PARIS 2e

"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


A very comforting start into a NY trip

If you happen to be considering this as the view out of your airplane window before leaving Paris Charles-de-Gaulle airport, you might wonder how well cleaned the cockpit windows were.
But do not worry, after a 'defrosting' session and 2 hours of delays my little plane finally got the OK to depart.

Obviously it's hard to see what's going on out there, but thank goodness I got a zoom on this camera: let's see...

Ok looks like another plane. Air France obviously. (I'm flying Air Canada btw). Now for a better zooming in:

Oh, fun. Let's see: a frozen plane, a whole batallion of anti-riot police forces lined up next to police cars and a stealth security van hanging out in the cold... very reassuring indeed. I'm amazed I got out of this alive.

    I hope your trip is fun - the weather up in the northeast is pretty awful this weekend. 18 inches of snow in Washington, and I think that storm is in New York/New England now.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
