On Our Way to "The Future"

The best thing about business class is that they feed you every two hours! Every time I turned around there was a new menu, and since I don’t turn down food, I ate a lot!! I lost track of how many different meals were served some where between the candied walnut and mixed green salad with peppercorn dressing and the fresh fruit and cheese plate. It’s making me sick just thinking about it.

We had an uneventful 2 hour lay over in Minnesota, and then we flew 12.5 hours to Japan. Landing in Japan was awesome. From the plane we could see golf course after golf course, so now we have decided Tokyo will be one of our golfing trips. We hung out in the lounge at Narita Airport, where we ate authentic Japanese sushi... (yep...still eating.) Lee was impressed by the automatic beer pouring machine. It is a machine that pours your beer for you, and tilts the glass so there is no foam... I didn’t see it. I was too busy trying to get Mr. Bigg to pee on the bath room floor.

(Mr. Bigg tagging along as my carry on)

Mr. Bigg went a successful 28 hours without going to the restroom. I took him in to the bathroom stall at each airport, laid paper towels all over the floor, and for 15 minutes said, “Go potty Mr. Bigg” while he looked at me like I was insane. God only knows what the people in the stalls next to me were thinking...

After a 2 hour layover in Japan we flew to Manila. This time we got to sit upstairs on the plane, which was pretty cool! We landed in Manila 4.5 hours later, relieved to finally be here.
