September 05, 2007


Since Thursday last week, I've swapped the High-Tech Consultant/Entrepreneur/Blogger' battle dress for the one of a simple humble grape harvester here in Champagne. Each time I see a commercial airliner on landing approach to Roissy, I can't keep thinking about the poor guys who are waiting in line at the ticketing or the customs, or rushing out of the aircraft to jump in the elevator to the parking lot... And I tell you : I won't change my uncomfortable position on the ground for a 180°-seat in Business Class...

How I envy you, Marc... I hope one day I can do the same type of swapping... In the meantime, I'm part of the poor fools' crowd hopping from one airport to the other, and I would add that to me, nothing beats the Virgin Atlantic lounge at Heathrow. Probably the closest thing in the world to Austin Power's pad...and between the 10 meters wide video screen, the free dispensers of toffee sweets or sushi bits, and the collection of art books, quite the groovy lair before going into lie-flat sleep...

@Julia : the Emirates lounge in Dubai Int'l airport is a nice one too, for businessmen like I was used to be in a former life !
