December 27th 2008. On the Flight to Paris.
– The seats on this flight are arranged in a 3-4-3 pattern. I am in the middle left of the middle. There are children in front of me and behind me. Thankfully, Air France does provide food and water free of charge, and really? Let’s face it: I love food. Also, the cutlery was designed by Philippe S+ark, designer extraordinaire who also designed my watch. Check out the sweet cutlery here.
– The dude behind me has knees like battering rams.
– I wish I had the pipes of that baby. Being able to yell for 7 hours straight is no small feat.
– There was a lot of stress in trying to reach the gate in Paris for my connecting flight. Despite never leaving the international terminal, I still had to go through a security check point. Thankfully I sneaked into a faster line alongside a few other Kiev folks. We ended up just barely making the flight. Way to drop the ball, Charles de Gaulle. Way to drop the ball.
