The big day…

Well, this is it – the laptop is being packed away and I’m doing the final double-checking for my 2:35 pm flight to Japan. Once I get there, it’ll be roughly 5:00 pm on July 24, Tokyo time. We stay in Tokyo for July 25 and 26, attending various orientation sessions before being retrieved by people from our respective prefectures and being taken to our new homes.

Next time I write, it’s from Japan!
