Cool place, this was. Nice and BRIGHT!


Breakfast

Breakfast

One thing I've noticed: The Japanese like to make you feel like you're at home. But french fries and salad for breakfast? Sometimes I think they try too hard. I enjoyed my rice pudding, though. And, the egg rectangle was actually better than the scrambled eggs (which I think was just egg yolks...uh..).


What time is it?

Stuart and Me on the Airplane to Nagasaki

Stuart and Me on the Airplane to Nagasaki

Ok, interesting story. About 3/4ths of the way into our plane from Tokyo to Nagasaki, the stewardess comes through with this cardboard cut-out that is supposed to look like JAL (Japan Air Lines) TV. All the Japanese people sitting in front of us didn't seem that enthused. Then she came by us, and Stuart and I didn't know WHAT was going on. THEN all of a sudden, everyone behind us (the JET/gaijin section pretty much) gets their cameras out to have the lady take their pictures with this thing. Once we figured out what was going on, we had to get a picture too, and here you have it -- complete with the PEACE sign :) Weee!
