21 May - Flight to Paris

It's 8:40pm EDT, so we've been in the air flying northeast for about two and a half hours, and the last of the sunset has just faded out the port windows. I hadn't thought about the route, but after leaving JFK, the plane flies up past Providence (hi, Chris!) and Nova Scotia (hi, Joost's parents!) before making landfall over Ireland, skirting England, and then proceeding across northern France to Charles de Gaule.

Just switched the computer to Paris time, and apparently it's 2:44am! We're going to land in about four and a half hours. Maybe I should try taking a nap.
