Finally reached our hotel
Place: Shiba Park Hotel
Date & Local Time:9 September 2010, 11:43 am
Note:We finally reached our hotel over an hour ago. It was a really interesting trip from Narita Airport to our hotel. The Airport Limosine Bus Service was punctual and really clean. You would feel really embarrassed to spill any small crumb. We went to the convenience store next door. It was interesting to find that many home prepared foods are now packaged.
When I was an exchange student, Okasan (my host mom) would make triangle shaped rice balls with a strip of seaweed wrapped on the outside. It would contain fish or meat inside. It was a real delight to find similar balls now available in the fridge section of the convenience store.
However, my ethusiasm was really shortlived. The balls were not as good as mom would make it. It just shows that home made food is still the best.
We had to move to different room, where there was no cigarette smoke.
