Longest Day!

Wow! It has been a long long day.   After everybody went home after the candle lighting service, I realized I did not have good photos for that.  So in order to take just photos, I lighted all candles and then took pictures.   That was good however I had to blow off all candles again and then I started to clean the temple.  Honestly, it took me time more than I expected.

I was planning to clean the office, but I was sorry I had to give up.

This was the best I could.

At 7:00am, when the supermoon was about to set, I left for the airport.  Because my Japanese class student was going to Fukuoka on the same day, his grandpa and he came to pick me up.  To my biggest surprise, I knew his grandpa was someone I know.  He used to come to my class.  The island is supposed to be small, but I met him after 13 years absence.

9:15 a.m. the Hawaiian airplane left for Honolulu.

11:55 a.m., the airplane left HNL for Narita.  I was super sleepy, but in order not to miss the food, I stayed up. 


It was worth staying up.  The food was very good and as soon as I finished eating, I fell aspleep.  I think in order to sleep well in the airplane, it is sometimes good to stay up all night before boarding. 

at 8:00 pm, I arrived at Narita airport.   Japan time was 3:00 p.m. on August 12.

Then I left for Ueno at 8:58 pm and arrived at 9:34 pm.     I holo^holo around Ueno until the next train come at 11:58 pm.


At 1:26 a.m., I arrived at Echigoyuzawa and changed trains again for Naoestu.



At 2:42 am, I realized I did ride too far past my destination.  And now I am thinking what I can do.
