In late June I was sitting in a meeting at work at about noon when all of a sudden my manager turned to me and said, we think we need you to go to France. TONIGHT!!! This was a real shock as I had not been warned ahead of time and this was a very new idea. Anyways I was supposed to go with a co-worker but he had forgotten his passport in Niagara (about 2 hours each way from Waterloo) He immediately left to get his passport so I got to work getting computers, network access and booking a plane and hotel in France for that evening. By the time I had gotten everything put together I arrived home at 6:30pm to a cab waiting for me in the driveway. I ran upstairs grabbed a small carry on sized suitcase, filled it with a bunch of clothes, grabbed my camera bag and then ran out the door. I got to the airport only to find that I was on standby for the flight, but after a few minutes of tense anticipation similar to that of a lottery drawing my name was called and I was off to France. On the way there we flew from Toronto to Frankfurt and then took a short flight from Frankfurt to Lyon France where we took a bus from Lyon to Grenoble which is where I would spend the majority of my next three weeks.
