In the land of the rising sun!

So, we're finally in Japan! We're settling into our new home (with loaner furniture that looks like it belongs in a doctor's office waiting room), and we just bought a car. We're enjoying all the new sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of Japan too! We had an interesting dish the other day that consisted of rice, beef, onions, and a raw egg on top (the egg cooks from the heat of the food -- no salmonella worries).

We're taking a train tomorrow to Miyajima, a small island halfway between here and Hiroshima. We're really looking forward to our first trek into the Japanese countryside!

Sadly I have no photos to post right now. I JUST found the cord to upload photographs, so they are currently being put on dropshots right now. This weekend, I will update the blog with photos and the story of our trip here. I'll also try to update you all on our side trip to Miyajima.

I know this isn't a very exciting update, but as anyone who has moved 7,000 miles can tell you, it's a tiring adventure! I will do my best to update often for you all. K

Fast Update

So, I know I've been a bad blogger. But I think I have a half decent excuse for it! If you've been paying attention to our moving ticker, then you know we have only a week left in the country. So, you can imagine, we're pretty busy. The movers have come twice already, for storage and our express shipment. They're coming for the last time to tomorrow for everything else. Between now and next friday, we're busy with the last few administrative errands, dropping our car off for storage in New Orleans, and running the last minute errands.

I can't promise that I'll be blogging any time soon though. I'd suggest that you give us 2-3 weeks to get there, and get settled. I do promise though, that my next entry will be exciting! I'll be sure to post about the journey and will make it pic laden!!

p.s. Tim got home two weeks ago. It's been lovely! Bennet is thrilled to have Daddy back!
