The Trip from New York to Okinawa, Japan (Photo Essay)
Home safe and sound and here's a quick recap of the journey from JFK International Airport to my favorite place in the whole wide world, Okinawa, Japan.
It all started off with a delicious steak and cheese sandwich.
Then, this humongous Delta airplane headed towards Tokyo, Japan.
A pretty Japanese girl who spoke English got stuck next to me.
She was somebody important, I think. It looked like she was working on a Doctorates Degree, or something.
Trust me. I know a bibliography when I see one.
So, I went to sleep.
The next thing you know, about 13 hours later, there was Japan down below.
The plane stopped and I got off in Tokyo.
Right off the bat, I was lost. But, three hours is enough time to figure everything out.
Tokyo has airports and planes all over the place.
You just have to find out which terminal to go to for your next flight.
Next time I think I'll take a boat.
Here are all the weary travelers on a small Japan Airlines flight headed to Okinawa.
Looking out the window as the plane was landing in Naha Okinawa, Japan I could see that rainy season was already started.
Lucky for me, RyukyuRu and RyukyuRusty showed up with some beer and stuff for me at the airport.
They even had my yellow flip flops waiting for me in the parking lot.
There's one of my feet on the bar.
We had a little party until the wee hours of the morning.
A trip from New York to Okinawa is a big event that seems to take up a whole day.
That got me wondering.
Maybe there's something we could do to make those planes fly faster.
