Not So Much Oh La La
Gail and I usually fly to Dubai with Emirates. But things being what that are, we had to look for a cheaper airline. After much trawling on the Internet, we found one with Air France. As neither of us had been to France before, we were looking forward to seeing what Charles de Gaul Airport in Paris had to offer. We were disappointed. There was quite a performance in getting off the plane, going through transit, and back on a different plane. We were searched twice, even though we hadn't been in contact with anybody. The first time by a very officious employee, who insisted people were checked one at a time. Some passengers got a bit irate, as they were in danger of missing their flight, as it took about 10 minutes for each search. Then the airport bus driver couldn't find the plane. He eventually did. Then whilst reversing, crashed the bus into an airport truck. Just as well it wasn't a tanker.
Here's a shot of the roof of the terminal T2, that I took whilst waiting to board the plane.
