Well I just got to my hotel in Helsinki. What a long trip. I wish Deb was driving the plane because then maybe I would have gotten some sleep.

The flight from Cinci to Paris was the worst. 8 hours of the most cramped seat flying I’ve ever experienced. I didn’t get an ounce of sleep, although I tossed and turned for the majority of the trip. I think the upgrade to preferred seating would of been worth the $100. I think I might do that on the way back.

Now I’ve been in a few airports in my day, and I have to say that the Paris airport is most confusing, pain in the neck airport I’ve ever been to. It’s taken a while, but O’Hare has moved to #2 in that category. There were only two cool things about it.

#1 there was cool architecture and art all over the place. (Too bad they didn’t pay as much attention to easy customer flow)

The curved wood wall is a lot bigger than it looks.

The other cool this was this toilet paper dispenser. I had to post this for Rob Andre to see. I’m not really a judge of toilet paper holders, but this one was the best I’ve ever seen. No scraps of paper all over the floor. But I bet a guy designed it. Hehehe.

Helsinki is cold and gray. My room, which I share with two other guys, is smaller than the boat. The bathroom literally is the old toilet/shower combo. Not sure how this is going to work. If it were warmer I’d look to camp somewhere.

Nothing exciting to see. At least just yet.

Now for a meal and a good nights sleep. Over and out.
