Friday 2009-05-29

The plan is to leave at 6:30am to get to the airport by 7:30am to catch our 10:30am flight back to Japan.

We were about ten minutes late leaving. Not bad! We got gas, returned the car (which took extra long due to my rental car exchange / return mixup previously) and got to the airport. We did a bit of shopping, and then headed to the gate.

Things went pretty well. The flight back to Japan went a lot faster than I anticipated. I spent some time reading, watched "Robots", played some of the Battle for Middle Earth, and napped a bit. It really went much quicker than I expected though.

On the flight back Risa was feeling pretty bad, and had had a cough for the past few days. We filled out our H1N1 mandatory health questionnaires and when we got to Narita were pulled out of the line to consult with a doctor. He gave Risa the OK because apparently Hawaii is on a list of places that isn't problematic for them, and they made her put on a mask. I don't really think that is going to help too much, but whatever. They tried to put a mask on me, but I declined.

We made it home via the usual (longer and arduous) route, and started some unpacking. Risa went to her parent's place to get dinner, but I stayed home because I still wasn't feeling too well from the flight myself. That happens a lot lately; I don't feel like eating after flying. I was able to watch three more episodes of Battlestar Galactica while she was gone though, which was great, and then I went to sleep.

Trip complete!
