... be a 5 minute wait to restock and the payment line is huge and getting bigger. I have to get going - I am not sure about how long it will take to get back to the airport and I don't want to miss the flight. A run through the cup store on the way out and I grab some hats and bags, program and a polo shirt for me.
Now reverse course back to the airport. All I want to do is ring and babble on to someone who will understand what i have just seen ...

The weird thing is that I recognised the hotel as the same one I stayed with my parents and sister back in 1992 when I was 19.

I wanted to experience a real Japanese sushi meal but my friends were not sushi fans. So I decided to do it on my own.
