Last Meal in Asia, @ Gate 25 of Narita Airport in Japan

This is as simple as can be, wakame and plum udon, from this little shop that we frequent every time we connect in the past four years. The broth was light and the noodles cooked just al dente. Japanese food can be so simple and so good. I will miss having authentic Asian food for the next 11 months…

Trip Begins Tomorrow

Time to pack up, find the passports, the New Taiwanese Dollars, the apartment address and the contact telephone numbers.  The flight is long. Three legs: La Guardia to Detroit, to Tokyo, and finally to Taipei.  Should take between 24-28 hours door to door.  Wish me good travel karma!  Stinky tofu, here I come!!
