Journey To the West … Part 2

So I was stuck in Paris, CDG airport. Luckily, I managed to get a seat of another flight and all I needed was to find ways to kill the 5 hours wait. First thing came to mind, of course was to send email to Copenhagen to postpone the meeting …

In the whole Terminal 2D of this airport, there were only two Internet Kiosks and the minimum charge to access the net (for 15 minutes) was “only” 2.5 Euro. What a rip off ? Do the airport operator know Internet now is very important to business travelers, or any casual travelers ?

I swiped my credit card and started to type the email with the metalic keyboard, letter by letter … what a pain ?!

Lesson Learnt: Make ubiquitous Internet access free please.
