Is it today or tomorrow

I hate jetlag......

semi-overcast 8 °C

Is it today or tomorrow?

Trying to stay awake until 8 p.m local time after being awake for 36+ hours. Not sure that Fred’s going to make it. We left home at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday (Thanks to Richard!) and arrived in Warsaw noon Thursday. The 4 hour layover in Vancouver was balanced out by the sprint through the maize of the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris and just making out flight to Warsaw. Felt like we were in Amazing Race. Air France offered menus with choices for dinner including red or white wine. Oh and blankets and pillows and enough free movie entertainment that we could have stayed up there for quite a while.

Flying into Paris was a delightful surprise. The fields in the area are a patchwork of greens, yellow rapeseed, and red earth. Beautiful!

Our hotel in Warsaw (4+star) is the one where we meet the rest of the group on Sunday, not the usual 2 star accommodation (3rd world style) that we stay in when on these trips. It’s in Central Warsaw and very close to many attractions.


Almost all of Warsaw was destroyed during WW2. When if was rebuilt the original classical buildings were recreated and the center of town was moved from the old town area to an area near by. We did a walk this afternoon and found quite a variety of old, modern, Russian, and restored buildings.

And now to sleep.

Nice to see what you are seeing. Especially the punches of colour like the patchwork quilt fields. Same old cycling and kayaking and sun and drizzle here.
