Here I am @ the Yahoo Cafe @ Narita Airport, trying to use a very unfamiliar Japanese keyboard & all sorts of funny & strange things keep happening as I type (ie my English turns to Japanese). We have just been into the shower rooms for a wonderful shower in the tiniest cubicle of all time but it feels So Good to be clean - even though our clothes are a bit pongy. The flight over was brilliant - again. Another bulkhead seat (ie loads of legroom) & yummy food & great service. Apparently, we are sitting up in the 'bubble' of our next flight to Australia tonight @ 9.30pm. So, we have about 6 hours to hang about here but there are plenty of posh shops to browse in, Japanese restaurants to possibly try & people to look at.
By the way, the title of today's post is supposed to be, 'Sayonara Cherry Blossoms' but for some reason, I can't get the word Sayonara to write in Japanese? Possibly a major typo on my part!
Narita Airport is so tidy & organised. I forgot to mention it earlier but every single person who comes to the airport has to go through security (like a border patrol) & show ID. Yep, even if you are dropping someone off... You get your irises scanned & are fingerprinted @ Customs & they monitor your temp too so that if you are too hot (& I know a few of you ARE) you get pulled in to the health clinic for a check-up! I kind of like it here & would like to come back for a longer visit. Mum, are you interested in coming with me? You'd love it!
Okay, this keyboard is making me めんたｌ！ (that's 'mental' in Japanese for you). See you later!
