Getting There:paris

We had some excitement at the CVG airport when one of the students arrived at checking with only 30 seconds to spare . I pleaded at the gate to hold off she will be here . I explained how important making the plane was for her. I think I bought her some time.  Then in Paris airport one student did not have her second boarding pass.  Everyone was already through security except her and I so we wandered around the airport looking for the ticket agents.  Found it and got back to the group about half hour later. Pictured here is us at the Paris airport.
