From the airport

Ok, I only have 3 minutes of WiFi left to write this, so it's going to be very concise. I made it to the airport Charles de Gaulle OK and managed to check in, despite getting in the wrong line at first.  I passed through a duty-free shop that had all sorts of wines and cheeses and foie gras and paté, but I made the wise decision of leaving the bad-for-you stuff in France for now.  I'll be back anyway. Now I have about 20 hours of travel ahead of me.  Paris-Chicago, then Chicago-Toronto, then Toronto-London, Ontario.  It's gonna be AWESOME. LUV, LMGM

You know you're Parisian when...

I've clearly been in Paris for a while, because today I was on my way from Pigalle to Bastille, taking the 12 line, and I decided to take 8 line instead of the 1 line to connect to Bastille, despite being roughly the same number of stops, because the 8 platform at Bastille is closer to the north-east exit of rue de la Roquette.

When you have memorized the layout of the subterranean warrens that are the main métro stations here, you've clearly been here for a while.
