This is an Airbus A 340. We are learning how to put on our life vests in French. Hope I really don’t have to do it for real. This is Air TahitiNui airline and we are going up over Greenland on our way to France. It feels like we are all off to camp, that’s a good thing. Synchronistic events are happening that are very interesting. Yes, I am on a pilgrimage. Yes, something important is occurring. Pay attention and let it happen Felipe.
They are serving food here momentarily. I trust the French to come up with something yummy. I smell something wafting through the air. This is an eleven hour flight and we have to come up with ways to entertain ourselves. Eating will keep us busy for a while.
I can feel it that old pilgrim thing of living close with others that you barely have just met. Sort of letting your space be infringed on continually. Just relax and keep smiling. They are all good people and they will be your companions for an extended period so get into it. We are all in the same litter of puppies and we are all in a pile.
Padre has been fabulous. He is my caregiver, handler and shepard for the trip. So glad that he wanted to go and take on this challenge. And it’s all so far so good.
Oh, what a fabulous airline dinner. Had chicken with mixed veggies and rice. There was a hard roll and butter. Cheese from Tillamook, all the cheese in France and we got cheese from Oregon, yea I like it. There was a corn salad with shrimp on top. There was cheesecake. And best of all free wine.
Well, our team leader was suggesting that we get some sleep but I’m just getting wound up. Half the people in the plane are up in the aisles talking to the other half so I don’t see hardly anyone following that advice.
Well, eight hours to go loves, Felipe.
PS ~ We’re here! Safe flight and bus ride completed.
