Manje-ah Pionne Paris

My original flights to Paris turned out to be cancelled. This means that instead of lounging on the beach this morning, I would have been STILL at the airport fighting to get on a flight out - along with the other thousands of people whose flights had been cancelled for the past five or six days.

I had a lot of doubts about putting the kaibosh on this trip back to Canada....and I think I was THE ONLY one jumping for joy when I saw the cancelled flights - confirming that I made the right decision.

I still don't really know what I'm doing yet.

I had been wanting to see a doctor in a first world country for some time, and the wonderful people at the Expat ER have arranged for me to see a highly recommended doctor in Johannesberg the day after I land!!!

I have a list of potential activies and where to go once I arrive in Johannesberg. (I still can't beleive I'm saying this) You can count on seeing some pictures of an African safari on my blog by next week.

I think I am - officially - the luckiest person affected by this whole ash thing. So thankful for that!!

I'll post pictures of my time here so far as soon as I can get a decent connection!!!

Oh - and "manje-ah pionne" means, "See you soon" in Malagasy. I'll see you soon, Paris, but not for a few months...

(One last thought - I am very happy for the "It's Five O'clock Somewhere" song.....'cause I had coffee with baileys AND then champagne with orange juice at breakfast this morning....TWO different kinds of alchohol before noon? Yikes! )
