... as Air France, so kept my electronics fully charged by watching the in flight movies - Expendables 3, Les Miserables, and Monument Men. Also watched a couple TV comedies.

Despite some attractive older buildings on the canal and a few modern icons, we found the achitecture to be uninspiring. it was a quiet night back at the ranch after we had a Dutch meal at the airport. The prevalence of smoking in public places was quite apparent from the outset. One wonders about the outcomes in terms of lung cancer rates compared with countries like ...
