After a leisurely stroll along the canals of Kampa Island, we had our last meal in Prague, which was probably the best one, here on the terrace of one of the Island restaurants called “C’est La Vie”. We were entertained by the boats passing by on their way through the locks immediately next door, as we dined on smoked salmon with potato blini & horseradish & Swedish caviar, roasted & marinated vegetables with Balkan cheese, risotto with wild mushrooms in sizzling foamy cream, and tagliolini with clams & white wine with lots of garlic, all washed down with a chilled rosé.
Then we were off to the airport, where our flight was delayed by enough time to cause us to possibly miss our connection in Paris back to Nice. When we landed, we were ready to make a mad dash to the next terminal at Charles de Gaulle airport, when, much to our surprise, we were greeted by an Air France representative as we exited the plane. He was waiting for us and for one other passenger also heading to Nice, so that he could escort us through customs and chauffeur us to the next terminal to catch our flight. We all felt like VIP’s getting special treatment by skipping ahead of others in line at customs and being whisked through the security checks. It was great ! And we made it to our flight just in time for take-off. Quel Service !!
