Two Months Here: One Month There.

In less than 24 hours I should be on a plane back to North America. It’s been just about two months since we relocated to Tokyo and this will be my first trip back to the States.

I have to be honest, I’m heading back with mixed emotions. There are many things I’m looking forward to. In no particular order:

  1. Cooler temperatures and lower humidity.
  2. Family and friends
  3. Quality fruits and vegetables (mmm – d’anjou pears, granny smith apples, affordable watermelon)
  4. Commuting (seriously, I’m looking forward to going to the office)

That said, I think I’m going to miss a few things in Tokyo, too:

  1. The view from our apartment
  2. The newness that greets us with every morning in a new city/country/culture
  3. Plumbing (this country knows how to design a toilet and bathtub/shower)

Oddly enough, Randy is already in the United States. Because of a death in the family he went to Virginia on Monday and will return to Tokyo next Monday. He’ll be back in Tokyo for just a week and a half and then fly to Boston to join me for a few weeks. This puts us apart for just over 2.5 weeks, making this the longest we’ve been separated.

And I don’t like it.

    If you get lonely, you know you can count on any of your friends to dress in drag and do the hula to distract you!
