45 hours, 3 airplanes through 5 airports, a train, a bus and a subway ride, 3 hours of sleep in a humid and hot tube, a "shower" from a hose and 6677 miles later I finally arrived in Misawa. It felt like I hadn't slept in a week and I'm sure I looked like it too.
When I first arrived in Tokyo, it was late and I just wanted to get to my hotel. With the help of some really nice Japanese people, I found my way to my hotel in no time. I had a little bit of time to "hose off" and head to bed.
We also went to a cemetery in Misawa City. There was an amazing shrine and all of the graves were beautifully taken care of and very elaborate.
I don't think it has completely sunk in where I am, it feels a little like a time warp. I don't ever know what time or day it is. The more we head off base and visit local places, the more it sinks in.
