Dull day and it rained alot later in the afternoon.
Went walkabout in town. Dave took lots of pictures with his new Olympus camera. I wished I had bought those cute wellies from Costco. I would be so stylish walking in the rain in Aizu!
Yesterday was an awfully long day. Left Truckee about 7.30am Friday and we got here about 6am Saturday Truckee time – in Japan, it was about 10 pm Saturday night.
Even though the packers came and took away 47 boxes, there were still stuff we wished we had packed so of course, we had to carry them with us. Dave had two hand luggage and two smaller suitcases. I had my handbag, a bak pack and a HUGE red suitcase. Imagine dragging these suckers through the train system. We had to take three sets of train from the airport, up and down several escalators! I was so exhausted and tired from not having much sleep on the plane.
We met one of Dave’s colleagues who moved here October of 2006. She was shocked when I told her that we have 47 boxes coming. She said she only brought 4 suitcases!! Omigod, I hope we will have room in our apartment but I could not come without having”my stuff” here with me!! eeeeekkkk! I hope there will be room….
