More time zone changes (seven) than flight hours (five) separate D.C. from Paris.
When we walked like zombies off the plane, it was morning—and we whooshed through the translucent tubes of Charles De Gaulle Airport feeling as if we had landed on another planet. Later, we enjoyed a friend’s night tour of “the city of lights,” punctuated by dramatic vantages and views of the inimitable Eiffel Tower. The Tower sports a temporary “2000” to celebrate the new millennium. And every hour on the hour, strobes and sparkles swarm the structure like fireflies in July.
