It had rained heavily in the night but there was a cloudless blue sky when we set out for London Airport. I think we saw more rain in London in a week than we saw in ten weeks in Paris. The Circle line train came quickly and the Heathrow Express was good. We went out at line speed on the down main line and didn't slow at all until the junction for the airport. The airport formalities were easy and I even found a bottle of Craigellachie single malt scotch at the specialty whisky store.
Boarding Air Canada was very relaxed indeed and the flight was very smooth. We arrived in Ottawa 50 minutes early. I wish all transatlantic flights could be this easy.
