Air France and Summertime

David’s father was returning from Thailand this morning and he made it safely to Paris. Then Air France decided to go on strike, so his flight to Geneva was cancelled, as well as all other flights within France until MONDAY. They’ve also cancelled several international flights. So papa had to rush to Gare de Lyon to hop on the TGV to Annecy, which probably cost 50 €, and he won’t get his money back for the Paris-Geneva flight. Strikes sure are awesome.

P.S. Turn your clocks back an hour tonight! Daylight Saving Time (sorry, Summertime period) ends in Europe this weekend, but it doesn’t take affect in the US until next weekend. So I’ll be 5 hours later than Michigan for a week.

P.S.S. Je suis en vacances !!! No more work until November 8!

    That is horrible about the Air France strike. I was in Paris last week for the transit strike, but I found a way to manage. I am glad I did not fly. I just hope nothing happens Thanksgiving and Christmas time since I am heading home.

    Oh I wish I read your post before today. I actually forgot it was time to change the clocks and did not realize until this morning when I woke up an hour early for work.
