Emily called earlier. She just wanted to let me know that she got to Tokyo all right. It was already Monday morning there. She says that she got to the hotel last night and went straight to bed.
The guy she sat next to on the plane is going to be a JET in Toyama. Her roommate at the hotel in Tokyo is a Toyama JET, too.
I can't even begin to imagine what life is like for her right now. She says that Tokyo reminds her of Shanghai. I'm so jealous. She's doing something that she'll remember for the rest of her life and I'm trying to decide if I want to put my Nintendo in storage or bring it to my new home. Its not much of a comparison. She definately gets the award for the most interesting member of this couple for at least a little while.
We talked for about 10 minutes; the conversation was over before I was ready to say good-bye. She says that she'll try to call me again, but I know that her calls will be few and far between.
