The Beginnings of an Adventure
So the first dinner has come and gone. We all met over a meal tonight at the Hilton. The disbelief is still hanging in the air but its beginning to fade as the details become clarified. Tomorrow we will depart at noon... and arrive in Tokyo Narita at noon. Ah, the wonders of international travel.
We've been told the best way to stave off jet lag is to sleep on the plane all afternoon as if it were the middle of the night. So that can only mean adventures in Chi-town tonight!
