Yesterday, was a l-o-n-g day.
I travelled from Itami airport to Narita airport to Honolulu...
I'll be posting from here for awhile. The date will reflect Japan time.
It was funny, I was supposed to be in Economy Plus (wider seat or something), but they were overbooked, so they called me up to the counter at the gate and asked if I would be willing to be upgraded to business class...
Who would be krazy to turn that down?!
It was a cool experience that started off with champagne before the flight.
Dinner was by Yamada Chikara, who I am not familiar with, but is apparently rather well-known.
That filet of beef was cooked perfectly with an onion "jam" on top.
There were all sorts of delicious sides and tiny breads by Eric Kayser.
Highlight of the flight was being able to lay flat for some zzs, and to see part of the sunrise (I was on the right side of the plane, so I couldn't actually see the sun rise, just the colorful clouds).
Breakfast was a smoked salmon croissant (too bad the croissant was hard.as.rock.), the coconut mango "soup" was refreshing, as well as the salad.
Immigration has a krazy system now....although it does seem faster...
Overall, the weather is quite humid, but it is nice to be home.
