From the flight deck... Well row 42... We have just finished our first flick Skyfall. It is a shame this picture didn't get the attention it deserved! You see half way through the volume went off and all we had were Japanese subtitles. We were still able to follow it. "Bang, bang, bang...yes mum...boom" is a universal language. After the film, there was a mad dash to the water closets (if you know my drift) and what happened - turbulence. As 007 would say. "shaken not stirred." Now a Monk repeat - that is unkind... Stay tuned.
Ok it is a double feature...and the next one is The Life of Pi. Now, this is the story of a voyage across the ocean that, well, has some unexpected events. You see there is a shipwreck and a boy, zebra, hyena, orangutan and Bengal tiger end up on a raft. Totally plausible. The boy - Pi - finds a book that recommends to avoid losing one's wits, one should play cards, sing, and stick to a schedule...all while on a life raft. Now we have a Fraiser episode... I gotta find us some cards!
We landed, got through customs, picked up a rail pass, got on the Narito express, transferred at Tokyo station, and walked to hotel... Namaste
