And it was. As we walked off the plane about 2:30 this afternoon, Becky remarked that the Virginia heat and humidity felt right. We proceeded through passport control and customs and into the airport where Amy met us.
I don't have the sense right now to put together some observations about the trip (my body clock says it's 2:30 AM), so I'll do that later. One thing that we all noticed was the sequence of checks at the airport. Here, we checked in and checked our passports, went through security en masse, and proceeded to the gate. At DeGaulle airport outside Paris, we checked in, checked our bags, went through passport control, and then through security at the gate. Some of our company had water bottles they had to discard. I somehow set off the alarm and was patted down by a nice young French man. It felt more like a gentle massage so I didn't mind.
All right, then, have to catch up on a number of things, one of which is sleep. Thanks for your comments and for following us on our trip. Film at 11.
