Early morning today. Woke up and caught the JR to Ueno with my sights set on the famous Tokyo national museum followed by an afternoon in the park for more cherry blossom viewing.

At the hotel, which is classic and gorgeous, we meet up with our final traveling companions, David and Cheryl Morley. We are a complete group. We agree to meet for breakfast and decide what Hanoi sights or day trips we will tackle in the two days before our official tour begins at 6 pm Sunday.
