My flight was uneventful although the scene in Montreal was pretty chaotic. Many people seemed to be leaving town with all their worldly possessions . I should have thought more carefully about those zip off shirts/ pants though. As if my artificial hip wasn’t enough for the scanner to catch. My entry into France was pretty surprising in that I was subject to no Covid checks at all. My carefully amassed documents and phone scan and two forms filled out on the plane never left my bag. I had applied for a French equivalent of our Quebec vaccination pass. In spite of submitting many documents I never got it but now I wonder how much it is being used? It was a beautiful sunny day here and I went out for a walk in the neighborhood. However after several restless nights a nap was more important. Many thanks to kind Yasmina for her hospitality. tomorrow I’ll take the train down to St Jean Pied de Port. Two sleeps there and then …..up the mountain we go!
