a hello from tokyo  
what a trip! as the folks in boston know, i didn't sleep a wink before leaving for tokyo on saturday morning, and i didn't get any sleep until after arriving at the keio plaza hotel where we jets are staying in tokyo.

i am sitting in my room now, sipping some hot green tea and taking advantage of some down time to use the free internet here. i just finished my first day of orientation and i'm very excited about everything that's going on right now. i'm meeting the people going to my area, getting information on teaching and workshops on life in japan, and getting tons of free stuff from all sorts of different organizations. i was kind of depressed before leaving, but now i feel like things are going to work out really well.

i'll be heading to my home town on wednesday, so i will be out of touch then for about a week. feel free to email me though and i'll write you as soon as i get it.

i miss you all, but i'm sure we'll be in touch. much love to everyone!!

ah... it's a long flight to do after a no sleep sort of day-night or night-day... did it once ... hit a brick wall of sleep deprivation in the Hong Kong Hyatt that I still remember fondly. I'm getting vicarious excitement all up and down my spine! So glad you travelled well and wish you much luck and adventures in Nihon =)
