We flew from Asheville to Atlanta and only had a 45minute layover and then we boarded a double decker jet and flew to Tokyo.  Shar actually managed to fit in 5 separate movies en route and then got a bit of sleep before we arrived.  I watched 2 and part of a third and then read a new David Baldacci novel- The Innocent which is a page turner from the get go.  The seatback TV even had a Berlitz program that lets you practice any of 25 languages so I worked on my Thai; but it is so very different that I doubt I will be able to do much more than say Hello, Good Bye and where is the bathroom?  The most worrisome aspect is that their alphabet is unrecognizable like most of the Asian languages so we may not even be able to read street signs.  Probably the better tactic will be to hire drivers with good English skills and let them guide us through the sights.  We have a 2 hour layover here and so we'll arrive in Bangkok at midnight so you probably won't hear from us until tomorrow evening. Talk to you then. Shar and Joe

Somehow I didn't think about your being in Tokyo.
I spent 2 weeks in Osaka (visited Tokyo) when my
granddaughter was born there (1992).
5 movies, Sharon! That would do me in completely.
More power to you!
