Welcome to Japan

After two very uneventful flights and over a day in transit I am in Osaka, enjoying the Sheraton's wi-fi. I had the gift of travel gifts, three seats in my row all for me, watched two movies and four episodes of "House of Cards" and was served two meals and a snack. I'm settling in and relaxing dora little while and then I'm exploring the department store next door to the hotel. I've had great recommendations about Japanese department store dining and will have dinner there. 

While waiting for my tour group to meet up with our guide I was interviewed by a crew from Japanese television who asked what I was most interested in seeing during my visit. Definitely, the cherry blossoms in Kyoto, though I know there will be many other things that will make memories.

Lights, camera, action. How exciting to be interviewed. Whatever your itinerary I know you'll have a wonderful time. Cherry blossoms sound lovely. I can smell their sweet fragrance. HAVE fun. So cool to be following your adventures from here to there.

You certainly know how to travel in style - great idea to take a film crew with you, with everyone thinking you're a superstar, (which of course we all know Buttercup), but you should be upgraded all the way to the front of the queue for the cherry blossom photos - ha ha!!
Will enjoy following your adventures!
