London Fog, the flight canceller, not the coat makers

It has been a long day of drama here in our apartment, complete with cancelled flights and international travel agents. I won't get into it now because I'm too tired, but the short of it is that the infamous London fog shouldn't be getting in my way of getting home (KNOCK SIMULTANEOUSLY ON EVERY PIECE OF WOOD AROUND YOU).

For the first time in my life, I made a travel to-do list and completed every item on it. Including this blog post. Another first-timer is the fact that I have more gifts than people to give them to. Let's just say I went a little crazy in a mustard store and leave it at that (more about this in a future post).

I leave Paris with a warm, fuzzy feeling (though it could be a hangover from last night's end-of-semester celebration at a bar in the 6th). Coming back to Paris in January will be coming back to friends and co-workers, familiar places and a metro system that I've gotten the hang of. Not bad for four months.
