▫️ DON’T YOU LOVE THIS PIC?
I was allowed once to spend some time in the cockpit (jump seat) of a Triple 7 (Boeing 777) taking me from Paris (CDG) to Rio de Janeiro. I had a lovely time chatting with the pilots and admiring the view. After a while I returned to the Business Cabin after a stop in the smoking corner which Air France had set up for the transatlantic flights. A bar was also available in this small area and fir me it was one of the best place to travel.

I have a few expat friends still living in Shanghai. They keep me up to date on what is going on. I just received from one of them a few pictures of an old neighbourhood at night. It certainly brings back good memories.
