I’m on solid ground here in the airport lounge and happy to report nothing is a-wry. I got my boarding pass as well. It’s an All Nippon Airlines flight masquerading as a Continental flight that will take me to Hong Kong. I snapped all the pictures the last hour or so. Oh, no Tin tin books but I did get two Doraemon books from which I will post some pictures later.
The pictures : I’m at Terminal 1, the International terminal / view outside of Terminal 1/ set your watch to Japan time, 16 hrs ahead of Seattle time/ the Narita aiport mascot points to something / my childhood favorite Kit Kat candy bars are available in green tea and wasabi flavor here / the red lettering ‘K’S COFFEE SHOP’ looks like Starbucks but its not, it’s Beck’s Coffee Shop / ever seen a paper hippopotamus? it’s from the origami art store, as is the scene from Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf ! he heh / check out the tuft of hair that the Gap Japan dude is sporting / and a Newsweek magazine showing 3.11 (as the day of the earthquake became known)
