After a two-day trip to the Big Island, it was time to begin my "new life." On Monday, I flew to Japan to begin my next adventure abroad. I wish I could have said goodbye to more people, but I had to quickly leave Hawaii in order to be here (long story).
It was a long flight. I flew to Tokyo (8 hours), then on a domestic flight to Nagoya (1 hour), where I am currently living.
It is FREEZING in Japan! I now regret not bringing enough cold weather clothing. I should have learned my lesson from my last experience at Mauna Kea summit.
My first night in Japan, I had to take an ice cold shower and sleep in freezer-like conditions. I am glad I survived. I now have heat (thank goodness!).
I love my new place. It's very small, but cute. I feel like I have to shower in a cube because I can reach the ceiling. If I was any taller, I would hit the roof. It's very interesting.
I also have a lovely view of the town from my balcony.
I am really enjoying Japan. It's only my third day, but life is good.
