|At 5:00am I am not the most
coherent person, and being up this early is not my favorite thing. However,
the excitement of going back to Japan and starting what I am sure will
be a life changing adventure has my adrenaline pumping. I am extra chattery
this morning, due to the lethal combination of adrenaline and anxiety
pumping through my veins. The one thing that is scary to me is being
alone in Japan, a country where if lost, I will stay lost! Not to mention,
I have never had so much freedom on my prior overseas trips and, the
other trips I have always had at least one good friend going with me,
but not this trip! I am flying solo. Yet, I am thrilled. It is time
to board the plane and get ready for 11 hours of fun.
Why you should fly with Singapore airlines:
||You get a
warm towel upon boarding.
||What looks to be apple
juice and is served along with orange juice is really beer.
||Free cocktails (If you're
21 years and older, or appear to be).
||If you're a male you
will appreciate the female flight attendants whose bodies resemble
||If you forgot to bring
entertainment you can pick from over 50 movies.
||At dinner you are served
Ben and Jerry's ice cream, and not that generic crap.
||You are fed about every
hour, and will never go hungry or thirsty.
||Lastly, you may get as
lucky as I did and sit next to a self confessed, bleeding heart
liberal mormon, who gives you more information about himself than
you ever would need to know... all before lift off!
We are getting close to land and I am very excited and more than
ready to get off this plane. However, we have to wait until the
people have done a check for swineflu. They just came into the
plane and have been shooting all of our heads to check our temperature.
Luckily, there is a very pretty sunset out the widow of the plane
to distract me. Anyway, I hope the trip will be all I hope for
and more. At this point I have no questions because I am too tired
to think. I just hope I like Japanas much as I remember liking
it. I also hope I take away a greater understanding of the people
and the culture, something I could not do in the 5 days I spent
here last time.
