Nearly 12 hours later on the plane to Japan, and it feels like so much shorter! Its great having an open seat next to me, but sleep is still wishful thinking. If I'm lucky and keep on schedule with the right trains and buses I will get to sleep around 5 am Seattle time.  I can't stop thinking about what to expect and what to say to the people I've been in e-mail conversation with for months. Using Japanese everyday is necessary, but it will be tough...
My computer is about to die because it was on the whole flight in my backpack! Oops. Less than 10%. Before this entry is over, I'd like to say that I spilled an entire glass of water in my lap and had to sit in a puddle. Then I realized I had an extra pair of pants in my carry on- let's just say it would have been a much longer flight if I had checked that bag. I actually thought about taking off my pants to let them dry. Although on second thought the stewardess probably would've found a problem with that. If not, the row of older Japanese men to my right would have given me very strange looks. (I came very close to taking a picture of them when they were sleeping- hehe- but reasoned that the flash would definitely wake them up and who knows what they would have done about that... Not a lot of water on this thing- feels like a desert; fatigue and skin, nose, and eyes are totally dry! Where's a survival kit when ya need one?
