Awaiting Departure
 
 Well, here I am waiting in the Toronto Airport for my flight to Paris! For whatever reason, my flight has been delayed an hour, and since I was already super early (arrived at 1:30 pm for a 7:00 pm departure) I decided to treat myself to an afternoon in the business class airport lounge.
 
  I got a real deal on the flight - only $360 taxes in one-way to Paris... probably because it was the g20 weekend, and most people are not jumping at the chance to fly while downtown Toronto is currently being lit on fire by protestors. Seriously, the news just showed this cop car on fire, and while I know I shouldn't be prejudiced, I'm still a little annoyed at the cop who pulled me over on Thursday and tried to force (the stone sober) me into doing a breathalizer - so, I kind of think that this flaming car is awesome.

  So - here I am, I'm living it up with wi-fi, unlimited buffet - and drinks! I think I might have a glass of wine or two before boarding... that way I'll be sure to have nice sleep on the plane.

I am arriving at 8:00 am, well maybe 9:00 am now with the delay in Paris! Going to do my best to navigate the french and the subway system (systeme de subway?) to meet up with Phil, Anaita, Sunil and Emily - four friends from school. Then I've got 3 days in Paris to... well do whatever one does in Paris! Pretty sure more wine will be involved...
