I almost gasped at the leg room, only to realize that this was business class. Economy was still pretty sweet.
Girl’s gotta love a charging port for her cellphone.
The flight flew by in no time. Was mortified to see that my roaming wasn’t working (darned Globe) and Globe was completely unhelpful when I tried to contact them via Twitter. Well, they did respond, but since I only had wifi in the morning and evenings, I never really got to talk to them in detail, and none of their suggestions worked.
Wifi at Narita wouldn’t work either. That was, until I realized on the way home five days later that I should’ve registered or logged on via web. Thank goodness my friend, G, who was just in Tokyo a week before, told me about Globe’s epic fail at roaming in Japan and told me about pay phones in the airport (and just about every train station in Tokyo. Now how did they know that would be helpful?) But the smallest denomination I had in Yen was a grand. So bought this for Y157 to break my Y1000 and did a double take when the cashier dumped a bunch of coins in my hand. I thought I was being mischanged. Turned out their denominations after 1000 is 500 in coins.
Waiting for the Skyliner, which arrived exactly when it said it would. Earlier even.
Used the payphone at Ueno station to call Cammile. And finally, we find each other!!!
Finally! Home for the next four nights. I absolutely LOVED and looked forward to the walks to and from “home”. I loved the feel of the biting cold on my face and the wind whipping my hair around. Sigh.
