Well hello again!
I just wanted to let you know we've all arrived safely in Berlin. I'll blog more fully about our trip and arrival as soon as I have my full sized computer and a decent keyboard.I can't type properly on this, the tiniest laptop with Korean keyboard.
It was a long, long journey. Nearly 24 hours in all. We arrived late at night on Monday and our pets arrived late at night on Tuesday. We are all extremely jet-lagged and discombobulated. None of our stuff has arrived yet, so we're living on basics for now.
Rhiannon has been to school already - she loves it so much more than her school in Tokyo. And I really love the fact there's a door-to-door bus service! No more school runs for me - and regular readers will know how much I hate them.
Tomorrow (Friday) I am also going to school. They've asked me to talk in two assemblies about the earthquake. So I suppose I'd better write some notes or something.
I have decided I WILL fill in the blank two years of Japanory in due course, so do pop back when you can - if you follow me on networked blogs, you will know when I've made an update.
In the meantime, I'm still awaiting inspiration for a new blog name for our time in Berlin.
Please help me! Either make a suggestion in the comments below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and see you again soon!
PS - I still have jishin yoi! Most unpleasant, but hopefully it will go soon.
