Air France lounge at OHare

So, yesterday evening my flight from Raleigh Durham was cancelled. I found out after i came in from working in the yard, wet from rain and decorated with grass clippings. I will admit to some frantic behavior as i dialed the corporate travel agent and then tossed the phone to Christine so i could get a shower. By the time i was out, i'd been rebooked on an earlier ... 5:30 am ... flight. That added two hours to my six hour layover.

The lounge has wifi, free food and drink including champagne, and comfortable seats next to a power outlet. Excellent tea! The tea descriptions even distinguish China from Indian blacks.

I fear i have mainly been productive in going through Google Docs and trying to make the documents available off line. I suspect i will have intermittent networking access until i check into my hotel in Tallinn. No wifi in the rooms on the ferry, even though the operator notes, "As people need Internet access nowadays almost as much as air...." There is access on the public decks.

Presentation angst.

Well, i am going to read and eat couscous salad and drink the red wine before saddling myself back up and getting some waking in.

I would feel far more comfortable if there was a gate for my flight.

In reading news, let me point you to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/420370544/shadows-of-hyperion. I've enjoyed the Grand Central Arena series by Ryk E Spoor and would be delighted for Ryk to have the capacity to write another entry. It's a fascinating universe and i'm curious about it and the characters. You can start the series with a free Kindle copy: https://smile.amazon.com/Grand-Central-Arena-Ryk-Spoor-ebook/dp/B00APAH4ZO/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=ryk+e+spoor&qid=1560448747&s=gateway&sr=8-3
