Travel Travails

The AirFrance lady refused to check my bags all the way through insisting that I would have better luck just getting them at CDG and running to check them in again with US Air even though the airlines have agreements to check bags through. I ran. I missed the mark for baggage check by 2 minutes. They would have checked me in but the luggage was already closed. So thanks, AirFrance person.

I am now going to take today’s identical flight. We’ll see how it works this time.

The collage travelogue I’m working on is very satisfactory. I’m using any kind of free literature I find laying around while I move about the planet. It’s very fun to put things in a light that is so tainted by the sort of corporate and commercial images we’re bombarded with on a regular basis. It’s also neat to see how my attention will fall on a word or image. Ah, introspection. The best airport pastime.

  1. Best by GPS.
    Follow the signs to Mazamet/ Villemoustaussou using the D118. At the end of the last straight part of D118, you will come to a roundabout with the Dyneff gas station.
  2. Take the exit towards Pennautier. Continue 500m to a small roundabout and go straight over.
  3. Look out for the second road on your right, Avenue des Cévennes which curves up hill (about 1km) to Avenue de la Montagne Noire on the left.
  4. At the last juction, bear left. the road sign “Ave de la Montagne Noire” (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
  5. After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
