[A "nikki" is a journal. I will be posting excerpts from the journal I kept while on this two week trip to Japan. Occasionally, I will insert my current reflections, marked in italics, among the journal selections.]
(Approximately 5:45 am.)
Left my house 3:30 am. Brandon, from work, was nice enough to pick me up at that hour.
I was able to change to the 6 o'clock flight since I arrived so early.
Checking in was relatively smooth although my large carry-on would not fit without removing quite a few items.
My mother, Aunt Nobuko, Uncle Baker, Val and Carlos have been in Japan well over a day now. It sounds as though their trip was uneventful. I have to admit feeling some trepidation in finally departing for Japan. So much work has been put into this trip already...that I feel exhausted even before leaving Orlando. I think the excitement of it all will build as I near Nihon.
