My Dusseldorf-from-Berlin plane touched down in Nice at 1:50 pm. 45 minutes to retrieve bag from carousel. 25 minutes waiting for and then loading onto the bus. Bus left Nice Airport 40 minutes ago and we’re currently slogging through traffic — another 5 or 10 minutes. 110 minutes, all in. Not awful…okay, it ‘s fine.

Update: Waited 25 minutes to get into pass-dispensing portion of the Pslais only to be told at the gate that no bags are allowed inside, and that I’d have to lug my gear back to the Place Maritime and leave them there. Par for the French course.
