After a whirlwind tour of New York (more on that later), we survived a trip from NY to Reykjavik, Iceland and then on through to Paris. May I just say for a moment that IcelandAir is one of the most pleasant airlines I've flown? I dearly hope we can fly again and actually stay for a visit.
Our pre-arranged taxi picked us up at the airport promptly and took us directly to our darling little apartment in the 11th arrondissement. We have only explored a small bit, but there is something interesting at every turn.
Our host, Guillaume, was waiting for us for our early morning check-in. He thoughtfully purchased groceries for us, so we had eggs, milk, yogurt, bread, coffee and juice waiting for us. Small kindnesses like these have been very bolstering.
Our main goal for today is to "stay awake!" Mostly resting in the apartment and trying to wrap our brains around this adventure that is in full swing.
And finally, this is my "keeping it real" photo snapped by Jane in the Iceland airport. She laughed and told me my mouth looked like a sandwich. I don't know what that means, but I'm pretty sure she was just as delirious as I was.
