I arrived in Morocco yesterday Friday (their time) and wanted to share a bit of my travel sights. Fortunately, there was no drama, like people being dragged off the airplane or delayed flights or gate changes--more tricky in Paris where my language skills falter.
In order to catch the 6:10 A.M. flight out of Albuquerque I had to kick the birds awake at 3:30 A.M., get dressed, feed the dogs, close the suitcases (left open in case of any last-minute additions) and load them in the car in time to leave at 4:30 to arrive by 5:00. Fortunately Black Mesa coffee is up and running at the airport by then so I could be awake enough not to miss the flight.

|Perrier seemed the appropriate beverage before|
flying to Paris
Arrived in Atlanta on time--nothing for me to stress about since I had a six-hour layover. Thanks to Marianne Rice, I had a fun read to dive into. Check out Strawberry Kisses, I recommend it.

Finally, at long last the wait was over for the overnight flight to Paris. Sadly, I had a middle of the middle seat--you know, those plans that have three seats on each side and four in the middle. Hemmed in by a couple of guys (not cute enough to distract) I got very little sleep. Thanks again, Marianne. Jake was much more entertaining in sooooo many ways than the my seatmates.
In Charles de Gaulle Airport, I made a beeline for Starbucks--yes, I’ve been in that airport often enough to know exactly where it is--and loaded up on caffeine.

Then on the plane for the last leg of the trip, Paris to Rabat, Morocco.
At last, peace in the garden.
