The travels of Brammers, part fuck me I am over it  
It's 2am, and raitala and I have tickets from CDG to Heathrow at 8pm tomorrow night, as the Eurostar is cancelled and ferries look as though they will be, too. While I had been wishing we could see more in Paris, I meant to come back, not stay indefinitely. At least we are reasonably sure the planes will be flying. And it was beautiful today, though I have recalled that I actually hate Versailles ... alas, after arriving there. It is one of those places that causes aesthetic fatigue, but not in the enjoyable sense, rather in the 'Really? Are you sure?' sense. Though some of it was comedic.

Anyway, we are up at 6 to go to Gare du Nord and cancel our train to Calais, which we booked when the ferries looked more positive. And we have a back-up plan of finding a private airport and looking fetching if all else fails.

One very nice thing has been the great deal of help offered by our hotel staff. Hotel Europe Saint Severin, if you are ever in need of a mid-priced Paris resting spot. On the left bank, right by the Cluny, and with unfailingly fabulous, patient and multi-lingual people on the front desk, 24 hours. Plus, a really lovely hotel cat who runs to us when she sees us now. Ah Isis, you know how to pick them!

I thought of you when I heard the trains were having trouble, and hoped you weren't stuck :(.

I hope the alternate plans go smoothly.

I love lodgings that come with cats! There should be a guidebook for that. G already knows that anywhere we go, when we see a friendly cat on the street I have to stop whatever I'm doing and give it attention.

Hope the travels improve, and you are home in time for Christmas.
