Yeap, that's what I was typing up.
More than likely what we're seeing is just the far of the link from IAD to Paris. This is evident from the fact that the next hop to Frankfurt is only an additional 3ms beyond what is reported as IAD.

Isn't this most likely a side effect of MPLS tunneling and the 93ms jump there is actually the trans-atlantic segment? All the european hops following it are very close in latency to hop 11.
