I'll be airborne, somewhere over the Pacific, on the way to the Land of the Rising Sun where it will be a calendar day and 17 hours ahead of home - and I get dizzy trying to figure out what that means. I will simply put one foot in front of the other, following my directions to arrive at the Comfort Hotel, somewhere in Tokyo, a bus and a cab ride later.
My Bike Friday is packed; a small duffel of gear and clothes is packed; my camera and gear and a very small backpack for carry-on are ready to go.
So, what do I do now? I process Italy, of course.
Oh, but when I get back I hope to have images from Tokyo, Kyoto and Mt. Fuji to play with. I'm very excited about this trip.
