Greetings from Champagne
It’s a rainy morning in Reims - it rained so hard this morning that it woke me up from a dead and delirious jet- lagged sleep. I arrived at the Paris airport yesterday morning at 8am, feeling pretty good. Whatever energy I had left was drained out of me by the brutal 3+ hours in the passport-control line. Yikes! I’d never seen anything like it. There were some 4-5,000 people in line being attended to by only 4 immigration agents - and of course the air-conditioning was non-existent. It literally sucked the life right out of me.
At least my luggage was waiting on the carousel when I finally got through! I loaded supplies into the Reims apartment upon arriving, and then managed to stay up until 8pm. I was awakened by a pounding rain after a good 10 hours of sleep, so I should be in fairly good shape for my tour group arriving tomorrow. Looking forward to another great trip, taking our customers on a deep dive into the hidden worlds of Champagne. I expect we might eat and drink fairly well :-)
