... from the Station but we weren't sure which one any more.
Luckily enough it was behind the first corner we tried.
After settling and leaving for food we returned to a sauna of a room. Apparently our radiator (not attached to the wall) was left on full. So we are now settling in for an overly hot nights sleep, training for Asia perhaps?
At least we know our way back to CDG for tomorrows flight, thats our silver ...
As for me I’m not on my way to Burundi. I’m now in Paris, but still have a long trip before me. I left Dallas yesterday at 1:00 pm on a flight to Boston, where I had only a few minutes before boarding the overnight flight to Paris.

Then we walked back to the coach, which took us back to the hotel, and I went to bed around 11.
