My Air France flight to Paris leaves four and a half hours from now so it’s time for re-packing and hitting the bank and last-minute whatevers before taking the A train out to JFK. Thanks very much, Air France, for not offering on-board wifi. (If shlubby-shleppy Delta can offer it, why not they?) As far as I understand they don’t even offer AC plug-ins for computers and phones…nice. I might manage a couple of final posts from the airport lounge before the plane leaves, but then again maybe not.

Flight #23 will arrive in Paris at midnight New York time. That’ll mean trying to get some sleep when my mind and body won’t especially be in the mood. To alleviate this I’ll be taking Ambien for the first time in my life. The Paris-to-Nice flight arrives at 2:55 am Manhattan time.
