My daughter Jordana Shalhoub pictured in London on her 22nd birthday.
Snapping a photo of Jordana early this morning as she headed towards the departure gate at Aeroport Charles de Gaulle. Bonne annee! Au revoir!
Last passport check before the departure gates. Note the red balloon accompanying the child next to Jordana.
The usual departure screens provide flight information and departure gates - Jordana's flight was to Newark, then Savannah - all being well, home in time to dress up for a New Year's Eve party.

An electronic board appealing for aid for Darfur. Since 2003, nearly half a million people have been affected by one of the world's worst humanitarian conflicts. More than 232,000 Darfurians have been displaced from their homes in Western Sudan, along with 90,000 Chadians and 48,000 from the Central African Republic. More than 200,000 people were slaughtered by the Janjaweed Arab militia allied with the Islamist government in Khartoum. The government has rebuffed international envoys and ruled out a United Nations-led peacekeeping force. Earlier this month the UN evacuted more than 70 aid workers from the biggest refugee camp in Darfur. In the UN Security Council, Russia and China have blocked imposing sanctions against their ally Sudan.
