I missed my 3 hour connection in Cleveland. Carrie had to come out to France on her own. First time out of the country. My parents were wondering if she’d be ok. If it was anyone else, I’d be worried but carrie had smooth sailing inMe…not so much. After being delayed in LA, we (the gate agents and I) were trying to figure out if it would be best for me to go straight to newark then to paris or if i should stay on and cross my fingers. Clearly, I lost.
the good news is that the flight attendants felt so sorry for me that she refilled my rum and coke (at 10:00am) twice. I was so miserable…by the time I got to the hotel, I was tired, hadn’t bathed in over 24 hours, and sweaty from having to change trains mid-ride over.
On the flip side, we’ve already had the best cheese EVER, went on a backstage tour of the eiffel tower, and already had a great meal!! We walked from the eiffel tower to this restaurant…ok, it was more of a run but we made it in about 40 minutes. If i keep this up, I’m hoping to lose some weight.
Be sure to make your reservations early enough as this place gets very crowded during the 2nd seating (2 seatings per night). It’s a set meal, seated and served family style, perfect for people like Carrie & myself who tend to be a bit…well, anti-social. It really forces us to at least try to speak to those around us.
One other tip is to buy a bottle of wine and share it with your table mates. This ensures that even if you don’t speak French, everyone will speak the language of a toast…
