Arriving in Japan

We left Denver on Tuesday, Flew out of LA on Wednesday, and arrived in Tokyo Thursday afternoon. We spent the night in down town Tokyo and woke up around 3 am, ready to go! Jet lag is a great thing, haha. Sarah REALLY wanted pancakes....did you know they don't eat pancakes! The Japanese traditionally eat rice for breakfast. They actually eat rice for every meal. Yum! So we were told to visit the fish market. Let's just say this is not on the top of a pregnant womens things to do. The smell alone should kill you, however it was one of the most amazing things we have ever seen. Tsukiji is the largest fish market in the world and is located in Tokyo. It was only a few subway stations away from our hotel. We didn't eat any sushi, but we enjoyed some other things that we will never know what they were. Later that afternoon we took a flight into Misawa where we were greeted by our squadron at the airport. What a welcome!

Glad you made it! I've been thinking about you guys lately... Met a girl, named Ellen who is here visiting a friend of mine and we got to hang out for a day and dropped her off at the air port for more travels before she goes back to Japan! Anyway, she said that she met you and thought you were sweet!
