Konnichiwa

Greetings from Tokyo! We made it and basically have eaten and slept. But it is all very nastalgic... the smells... the sights... the sounds... it all makes me smile and remeber fondly my life here 8 years ago. Sunday I will go back to my town where I lived for two years and see my friends and church family there. That will truely be a walk down memory lane!

According to my friend Lorrie we are easing into Japanese culture. It began at the airport where we had Starbucks before getting on the train to head to Urawa(Kim's town). If you think of American coffee sizes -my personal favorite 16oz Americano with room for cream- or at Starbucks in the US a tall size. Not so here where you step down in size and my tall was a short and cost nearly $4. It was good, though. Lorrie thought whe was buying two coffees - one for her and one for Kim...but after waiting for the second coffee for 5 minutes Kim looked at her receipt to find that she only paid for one...

Check back for updates... I will try to keep up with my adventures.

PS Hello from Kim to all those who know and love her!
