We arrived in Osaka today a little after 4pm. We flew in on the new Boeing 787. This is an amazing plane! Power supply for my laptop. Recharger for my iPhone and windows that dim to your preferred brightness. I got so much done that I wanted them to take a couple more laps around the earth.
When we got in, I think we all underestimated the fact that we have zero language skills when it comes to Japanese. It took us about 4 hours to get to Kyoto. Definitely an adventure.
Also, the Japanese LOVE Christmas. There were decorations and classic Christmas music pumped into every corner of Kyoto. Tomorrow we meet Dean Kondo and Yu!
