A Very Short Day

[Saturday 19th November]
Having left Seattle at lunchtime the previous day, it was in fact still Friday according to US time when I landed in Narita Airport. However in Japanese time, a rediculous 17 hours ahead, it was well into Saturday. So the plane touched down around 4 in the afternoon. I got on a coach at 4:30, which got me to Shinjuku at 6:30 (yes - 2 hours - Narita is a long way from the centre of Tokyo), and I was back at the flat by 7. Chie, who had been out for the day, got back a short while later. I'm sure I don't need to say how nice it was to see her after three weeks!
We popped out for dinner shortly afterwards, and went to the stupidly cheap Italian place we'd been to once before. I noted it had gained in popularity somewhat since our last visit!
Within an hour of getting back to the flat I had fallen asleep, knackered (as always) after the flight.
