We got late check-out and caught the 1:50pm Friendly Airport Limousine back to Narita Airport. The airport itself is a pretty wild experience with beautiful shops and high end restaurants. Honestly though – we were both a bit too out of it to fully engage. It was a really nice combination of excited and forlorn though… we’re both psyched to get home and back to life. Brian has a remarkable laundry list of to-do’s including a movie contract, a toy deal, 2 scripts to complete, 1 to edit and I think 3 other projects that are near to going to print. I can’t even imagine what his email looks like right now! I’ll be up to my ears in work and quite frankly, we have a summer to enjoy @ home. After what turned out to be a very difficult 2008, this year has worked itself out to be quite amazing so far. And we’re only in May! I know we’re both going back with a laser focus on working hard and ‘making it count’ so that we can get our asses back here next year. I think we’re even aiming for the same time frame in 2010, although, I would not be too upset to see what winter looks like in Tokyo.

I know we’re going to miss this. This has been the best trip of my life. Bri’s too. For him, this was the realization of a life-long dream. He keeps saying that as long as he can recall, this has been the trip he’s wanted to take. And that it did not disappoint. We flew 7,000 miles to find this special city and fall in love with it and its people and their culture and again with each other. I am so proud of us for doing this and so impressed to rediscover the beautiful human being that I married. Domo arigato gozaimasu, Tokyo. Watashitachi wa modota.
