July 1997 – Japan

JULY 1997


20 Sunday

  • Departed for Japan.  A difficult day indeed but we shall see how it goes.
  • The flight was nice.  Business Class really isn’t what its thought to be in my opinion. The service was good, but i don’t care about service on a jet. If I want something I can get up and get it myself, the jet isn’t that big.
  • The seats and the video game option was a nice benefit though. 🙂
  • Met quite a many people on board. Hopefully I’ll see them again, it would be nice to see how the journey turns out for them.

    21 Monday

  • Arrived in Japan.
  • Welcome to the Hilton! Very nice place! I hear the breakfast is good.
