Hello from next year

Guess what, American friends? We are in different years. 

I think that is bizarre!

But I haven't slept in 28 hours, so my judgment is slightly impaired. But I still think it's a strange thought. Two different years. 

Anyway, 2016 is off to a wonderful start in Japan. Here are two pictures of the first sunrise of the year, which is a pretty big thing!

I want to write more, but I am too tired to think! Happy New Year, everyone!

Ends and beginnings

Well, it's dark in Japan. 

In 7 minutes, I'm heading out to meet friends to ring in the new year in Tokyo. 

Then we will journey to the beach to watch the first sunrise of the new year. 

I'm excited to see what this kind of celebration will be like! But I missed having family to hang around today. 

Why can't I have everything I want??


Anyway, here's to a lovely 2016 for everyone!

I updated my laptop to Windows 10. And now I can't use my blogging program. Augh!

So, here is a tiny update on my first 6 days of holidays. 
Talk to you soon, I hope!
