Almost as soon as we arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport, the memories came flooding back. Fiona's year at INSEAD had been a wonderful experience for both of us, and so it was with much fondness that we stood for 30 minutes waiting for our bags, then another 20 trying to get a rental car. We ended up with a Renault Clio which ran on gazole, making the nostalgia organ hit overdrive. That car rocks.
After bumping into Patik and Tracy, we made our way to Samois sur Seine, using the same maps that got us around five years ago. The Hotel Country Club
was gorgeous, an old three story building right on the river, in a very quiet and secluded area. We crashed out right away.
First stop after that was Fontainebleau for some coffee, a walk down the main street and past the chateau. Then off to INSEAD where we found a crew of old friends, poked our heads in the lecture halls and stayed all the way until the cocktail party. The night ended with a fabulous feast with 20 friends at le Country Club, which made it really easy to enjoy the wine and stay up till the wee hours.
