Mission to HQ, Day 6 (see previously 8.049 Veal Marsala).

On my way back home.  Was in Geneva to attend a Scoping Meeting on the Ethics of Vector-Borne Diseases – Thu to Fri.

In the business lounge at Geneva International Airport – boy, if ever a magazine cover screamed out at me…

When the menu said “baby chicken,” I thought maybe it meant a whole baby chicken.  (Otherwise, I would’ve gone for the Grilled Swordfish Brochette with chateau potatoes and Tuscany vegetables.)  Alas, just tenderloin strips.  Still, the cooking technique – deep-fried(?)/roasted(?) – imparted a nice crispy crust, while maintaining a succulent interior, making them perhaps the best chicken dish, even if mundane, that I’ve had in flight.

“Best of Turkish Meze” (2.5) – hopefully, this isn’t really the best that Turkey has to offer? anyway, better than most in-flight appetizers.

As always, I am grateful for and respectful of the opportunity to travel internationally, whether for fun or for work, especially via business class (see BEST IN FLIGHT), including airport lounge access (see in BEST IN LOUNGE).
