Le retour en France
I arrived back in France at 6 AM Saturday morning, a full hour ahead of schedule. I guess the pilot flew really fast? I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I did not have to pay $50 for my second checked bag, though I still don’t know why. The kiosk screen at check-in clearly said I could only have one bag free, but when I entered 2, it still said free, so that was awesome. In addition to the shorter than expected flight, I got to watch both Wolverine and Star Trek in English and the food was not terrible. Not having to go through passport control and security again at every connection was also quite nice. I miss flying within the US.
Obviously I cannot sleep now as it is 4 AM here. I can never sleep on planes, or in cars, or anywhere that isn’t my bed for that matter, so now I feel exhausted and awake at the same time. I hate how almost all flights to Europe are overnight flights. What a horrible idea. I lounged around for most of the day because I felt like a zombie, and I keep having this weird muscle cramp in my leg. I suppose I should try to sleep during the night so I can get back on a regular schedule. But playing with my new desktop computer and eating chocolate mousse sounded like a better idea.
