Paris: Flying Home

Our flight home was at 9:15AM. We checked out early and took the 6:00AM Le Cars Air France from Montparnesse to CDG, terminal 1. The Luftansa staff were on strike during our flight. Fortunately, we had the early flight and we were able to clear immigration quite quickly despite the slow service.


I bought a croissant to munch while waiting for our flight. The first leg of our flight is from Paris to Frankfort which is just an hour flight.


We were served oatmeal and yogurt for breakfast on the short flight.

Here are some of the photos from the garden. It was a huge garden.

The restaurant name is Aladdin. We had a Lamb Tagine. Besides the very tender lamb, there were egg plants in it too.


We had the lamb tagines with couscous, chickpeas and raisins. Continue reading
