I finally realized I was about 7,000 miles from home in a foreign county.
I was in bed reading, trying to get tired at 2:30, when the call came. I needed to get to Japan immediately. I packed as fast as possible and headed to the airport without even a ticket. The prices at the various airlines were outrageous topping out at $4,500. A quick web search got me a ticket for $1,200.
Twenty hours later I arrived at my in-laws. With severe jetlag and sleeping pills flowing through my body, it all felt like a dream. Two days later I finally came to the realization of what had happened.
I won’t go into the details of why I’m here, but the trip was absolutely necessary.
I’ll be on a brief hiatus from blogging while I’m here but will continue twittering.
