So, we just have a look around the store. There are a lot of pumpkins and squash.

Then we proceeded to Weaver Creek. There were some nervous moments as our bus driver got lost on a mountain logging road. He got to turn around twice on a narrow logging road and the people who sat at the back of the bus were most scared when the bus backed up to the edge of the cliff. They kept telling the driver to stop reversing. Fortunately, we made our way down safely. Continue reading

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.

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