Ko nee chi wa

Little blog, and all big blog friends.... guess what. I am sitting in a hotel in Yokohama and it is 4:30 on the morning here (about 12:30 in afternoon at home)and it is so cool!

I am overlooking the bay out of the window (67 stories high) and this hotel is connected to a mall with an amusement park under it, and it is bustling and happening. I am snapping photos like mad , of course, but oopsy- forgot my bridge cables to connect to the huuby's lap top. I will tell you all about it when I get home. For now thanks to sis for holding down the fort and babysitting (we brought the youngest son with us....I think we are wearing him out, though!) and I really should try to sleep more....I can't believe the strange state of jet lag that is taking over with this time difference!

But I can say this....Japan is amazing, bustling, well lit and twinkling, and everyone's movements are small and voices are pleasantly soft. I feel large and loud! Even my son is matching the height of little old ladies and adults and children alike are staring at his bleached tips and following him around in stores. Ahhh...to be a strange foreigner! What a great feeling!

Jealousy does not cover the envy that I am feeling!

I had no idea you were in Japan. I saw that someone came from your blog from Japan, and then you posted a comment, so I wondered if you were there.

Have an amazing time!

So said...

Wow, that sounds like so much fun. Is Mikey still pretty fluent in his Japanese? (must be, I'm assuming that's why your there.) That will be such an awesome memory for Parks. I'm sure all the little japanese girls are just in love with him.

Okay, how weird... sorry I kinda lost track of you, (WOW that really makes me sound stalkerish doesn't it?)

Um, yeah, so now I that I KNOW the reason is because you're in Japan...
