(this is Sara) I am packed! whew. I managed to fit everything I will need in one medium sized suitcase, weighing less than 50 pounds per airline requirement. I can't wait to see how Todd manages this feat!
14 hours on a plane is a very, very long time. I'm prepared with movies, magazines, computer, Ipod, travel pillow and blanket, snack (in case they try to make me eat sushi on the plane!), a Japanese-English translation book, and a tape on how to learn Japanese in 90 minutes.
I can't wait!
