I was sent to the airport to cover the departure of 93 immigrants who were being relocated to France. I imagined the assignment would take an hour or so. When I got there, a French embassy official told me I could join the immigrants on the flight to France if I wished.
As their charter flight was going to be delayed by a few hours, I had just enough time to buy a ticket for the flight back home, book an overnight hotel in Paris and dash home to pick up my passport, a change of underwear and my toothbrush.
