My first dinner in Japan!!! Not too glamorous!
Whoa, I am finally here and it is all starting to set in! The city is amazing, however the journey was not! I literally felt like I was on the plane ride that lasted forever! We left at seven-thirty a.m. to the airport on Sunday in California. We hung out in the aiport for a few hours and boarded a plane that had two levels and room upon room of seats. It was huge!
The flight was sooooo long and I didn't sleep much. Blah! We sat in the plane for an hour because someone didn't get on the plane but checked their bags. They had to go through hundreds of suitcases to find those bags. It took a long time and made me a bit nervous! The flight was about eleven hours long and they just kept feeding us. I felt like a slug! Ha! I did watch "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" and loved it (thanks for all my student recommendations!). I read a lot of my book and talked to my new friends. There were points where we would actually get up and do laps around the plane to move our feet!
After arrive at the airport, we drove through Tokyo. What a city! It's so big, but it is not exactly how I pictured it. It is very very clean and the people are so nice and gracious. My hotel room is awesome! It has views of the city and some very interesting Japanese items (I will take pictures). It has a heated toilet...hmmm...and slippers and a komino to wear around the room. I only get CNN in English, so I will know a lot about the news!
I want to write more, but I am very very tired. I will update this when I have time. I miss everyone! :)
