... International flight: don't I need to be there 3 hrs in advance ? Well, no. Bags scanned entering the terminal. Check-in desk doesn't open til about an hour before departure.

... supermarket where we stocked up on food, wine and beer before we almost literally staggered home to the apartment. Nice dinner with lots of healthy veggies; beans, cabbage salad, grated carrots, lots of lovely cherry tomatoes and some fried onion and potatoes. John completed his meal with milk and cereal (and local chocolate). First lot of hard exercise since France. We will sure feel it tomorrow. A very memorable day indeed.
