I've reached my last stop...Tokyo, Japan!

Had a great night out last night with Reiko -- she took me along to a going away party of a friend of hers. So good to meet her friends and to see her with them.
She and I met as she sells my line in Tokyo, and over the years we've become good friends. Makes my stops in Tokyo so wonderful!

The bus ride from the Narita airport to my hotel was long enough for me to knit up 3 of the fingers on my glove... almost done with glove #1! Yeah!

(Note to you travelers...JAPAN: Don't ever take a taxi from the airport to Tokyo - it'll run you in the 100s of dollars...and always check to see if there is an airport limosine (bus) that goes to your hotel. It's a decent price (3000 yen = aprox $28 USD) and it's door to door. If you take the fast train - although a bit faster innitially - I find that you loose tat time waiting for and taking a taxi the rest of the way. Also - if you take the train - note that there are only a few non-smoking cars - and you need to get a ticket for that car!

My cat-sitter tells me that Loco is getting more and more vocal...he does this if I'm gone for more than 2 weeks. Then I get the cold kitty shoulder when I get home - for about 30 minutes...and finally he'll plop onto my lap and just begin talking to me. And talking and talking and talking. :-) Can't wait!

Hi Kimberli, Your red glove looks great ! I think you are going to finish it in 1 - 2 days.

It is very very expensive to take a taxi in Japan. In fact, they have subway or bus to all places. It is quite convenient to use them. Do you have time for yarn shopping ? Hope everything is fine on your nice.

have a safe trip !
