STILL ALIVE

First leg of the journey went quite well, in Kansai Airport at the moment (it*s like a floating island) and the japanese keyboard is weird< so excuse the typos.

We are fine, knackered but almost human again after discovering the delights of the shower facilities. 600 yEn = the half hour opportunity to shower, wash hair, brush teeth and feel ALIVE again. Flight was very lush indeed, i can honestly say it*s the first time i have enjoyed airplane food.

At the moment lynne and i are just killing a bit of time before we board the flight to Sydney< so far we have slept< attempted to communicate with people< ridden cute shuttles, played card games with tarot cards and I entertained passerbyes by hitting myself over the head practising the backwards weave with poi.

iT still all feels vaguely unreal but i*m terribly excited about it. Japan is so cool - at least the bit of it i can appreciate from the airport. Plus i like having my money be worth an obscene amount of Yen, But then everything costs an obscene amount of Yen too so it*s a passing pleasure.

Will update again with tales of adventure and woe when i get the chance. :)

Kansai Airport’s the one that’s sinking, isn’t it?

¥600 = about £3.50–£4?

Is it?
I didn't know that, but hope not - at least not until after we're back in England. ;)

Yen to pounds- I think that's about right (Lynne reckons it's less than that) but my brain is too tired to wrestle with numbers.

Kansai Airport was built on an artificial island and was hugely expensive, partly because it sank more than expected. But it’s just about stopped sinking now :-)
