After a great time winding down,lovely food and massage and getting prepared for our long flight,we took the long walk to gate C27 to have an announcement board saying our flight had been delayed till 6 am on hearing this we decided to sleep at the airport worse case,any way we went to the long cue at the counter of the airlines to be told there would be a bus waiting down stairs to take us to the Marriott hotel in the city . It was a beautiful hotel we had two hours power nap to be picked up and taken back to the airport we finally got on to our flight after many directions. Malaysian airlines were great the plane was fairly empty and we were given a kind of up grade to our own three row seat each with the ability to lift the rails out and sleep .We got into paris the customs here seem non existent clearing customs was showing your passport and getting it stamped and claiming baggage . Now was the biggie getting from the airport to the hotel after several attempts and a long walk dragging our suitcases and being scammed once (ROB) not me for a change we found it although we seem to be in a very dirty dodgy part of paris it is an assault to your senses it is very very dirty and has a smell of rotting food and urine and you have to watch out not to walk on the dog crap on the pavement! makes you realize how clean NZ and Australia are we got here at five in the afternoon went for a nap and woke at 10.45pm and it was just getting to be on dusk today we have a tour arranged so we will see from here as to how the real Paris is so far first impressions are not great but i will reserve my judgement till after .
