After 15 hours on the plane and 2 hours of getting lost on trains and trying to find Pete, I'm finally in Gyoda. It's nice to be close to family and on vacation. I really needed this. I finally am going to get some R&R. I think that I'm going to watch a lot of TV and movies and then finish my book today. Funny how I need to travel all the way to Japan to be able to enjoy the simple things in life.
