From Osaka, Amsterdam was about 11 to 12 hours away.
Our flight from Osaka to Amsterdam had to be re-routed with heavy air traffic over Beijing, so I think we travelled the width of Russia...which is HUGE.
On flights this long, they fed us many many times...with lots of snacks and stuff in between too, Satoshi even had a cup of instant noodles.
Not only that but they had lots of things to watch on board too. I had seen a lot of the movies when I travelled back from Hawaii, but KLM showed many television shows too. I watched an episode of the new "Hawaii Five-O", "El Bulli (documentary)", and "Jamie's Food Escapes (Greece)".
From Amsterdam, Paris was only about 45 minutes...still, KLM gave us snacks and soft drinks.
We arrived in Paris at about 18:00 and it was drizzly, still we were able to see the tip of the Eiffel Tower from our hotel.
Around the corner from our hotel was Carrefour City, a mini-market which sold fresh fruits, veggies, prepared foods and drinks.
With all the eating we did on board, I wasn't too hungry, but apparently Satoshi was.
If you click on the photo, you can see all the descriptions of the foods we had.
I really liked the yaourt (yogurt) drink and the salad, was really big and had a lot of different "goodies" inside.
Satoshi also spotted a pastry shop, Cannelle, across of Carrefour, so we went to check it out.
He chose an ananas (pineapple) religieuse (two cream puffs filled with a pineapple filling) and I chose a caramel eclair. Both of these were very sweet and the cream puff outsides a little burnt.
It was a long day and we had to get up bright and early for a busy day of sight-seeing but I was excited to actually be in Paris.
