... day Alistair learnt a Typhoon was heading up through Asia from a little boy called Kodai. He spoke very good English and told us how he and his family were leaving before the typhoon came up to Japan. Okinawa is pretty much the southernmost part of Japan, located on a small island making very susceptible to tropical weather. Our flights home were pretty rubbish so a small part of us wanted them all cancelled so we could perhaps take a more direct ...
