Food, glorious food

I've been waiting for about 100 hours for breakfast! Jet lag hit hard with a 2AM wake up call. Ack! I don't mind waking up early with jet lag, but 2:00 is a bit much.

I read the whole internet, sketched, did my makeup, and stared at the empty tarmac. But 6:30 finally came, and I immediately stormed the breakfast buffet.

I'm not that good at assembling a breakfast from a Japanese/Western buffet.

In attendance on the plate:
Rice
Miso soup
Salad
Tofu
Fried potatoes
Vienna sausages
Mackerel

I thoroughly enjoyed everything and am now drinking as much coffee as I can hold. With an early wake up comes an early crash, and I need to get on track for LIFE.

In other news, I love the feeling of right now. The goodbyes are over and so are the flights. Everything ahead is fresh and new and terrifying and exhilarating. Looking forward to what lies ahead for us all!

Lovely Land

It's so good to be on solid ground again!

We got into Narita a little before 3:00 this afternoon. I was so glad to get off the plane!

My hotel is right on the tarmac, so I can see planes from my window. I'm also enjoying some fine dining this evening from a vending machine.

Hey, it was a good vending machine! I had some ham and cheese rolls!

Off to Nagoya tomorrow!

Airborne 2

There are two hours and 15 minutes left on this flight.

I need a leg transplant.

Maybe a body transplant.

You wouldn't think sitting would be so exhausting, but it IS! It's been a pretty turbulent flight, so the seatbelt light has been on for probably 80% of the flight. That means less moving around than normal.

In other news, I've watched several movies and half movies. I ate some chicken around 2 and a weird pizza around 8. I've also had a few snacks from my bag (Tootsie pops and granola bars). The next meal is either seafood or eggs. Airplane eggs are revolting, but the idea of seafood that has been riding along with us on this eternal flight is less appetizing. Oh, well.

I'm so ready to arrive! We've got 1000 miles left to go!
