I hate travelling...

Good morning everyone,

It's going to be another hot and humid day here in Hiroshima. And it's going to be pretty much the same all week-but now they are calling for a high of only (?) 33C next Saturday. That'll probably feel downright chilly, eh? Speaking of weather, did you see the mishmash of typhoons that are forming off the coast of Japan? There're three that are going to pass all around the same time...luckily, just after I leave.

In Canada, it's going to be a bit cool the first two days I'm home-highs will be around 24C. Then, it should warm up a bit and we can expect highs of around 27C or 28C the rest of the week. I hope so. I'm looking forward to some nice, cool weather-mostly because I'm hoping to get a good night's sleep. I feel like it's been about 3 months since I last woke up without being covered in sweat.

But before I get home to nice cool weather, good food and, most importantly, friends and family, I have to survive the flight. I don't have an irrational fear of flying-I think that it's perfectly rational to be nervous about going up in a big metal can with four engines and two wings that both have thousands of litres of gas in them.

Not to mention, the stress of getting through check-in, immigration, security checks and boarding the plane before settling in for a long flight...about 14 hours, I think...luckily, they've got personal screens now, so hopefully time will pass relatively quickly.

Now, I have to finish packing!

Wish me luck! And I'll be back in Japan in three (short) weeks...

Have a great day!
