Jason and I are in Tokyo! A city we have both been very eager to see.

We left Korea via ferry from the southern port city of Pusan. I had a wonderful time visiting my aunts. I'll write more on this later, probably.

I write this from one of the strangest internet cafes I have been in. I walked downstairs and picked out an 'internet plan'. My plan is for one hour, which costs 315 yen, or about $3. This includes free drinks. I was given a room number and walked around a dark labryinth of tiny cubes. I can barely see the keyboard. Certainly, privacy is assured here. The walls have built-in bookshelves lit with pink neon, filled with thick comic books. My cube has a computer, a TV/DVD player and a little safe (must be for long-term residents!). There's also a small mirror hanging on the wall and a hanger (again, for those long-term internet types -- one of the plans was 'all night plan').

Unfortunately, our hotel is pretty crummy. Cost $100 a night, too. Perhaps we'll move somewhere else.

Our plan for tomorrow is to buy our tickets home! So, we'll be back in 4 days if all goes to plan.

Just wishing both of you a safe trip back home. Now you'll have to consider writing a book on your world-wide venture!

Have a safe trip home! I cannot believe it has already been a year since you departed on this trip. Time flies and what an adventure you two have been on!

I bet Japan has been, hands down, the most expensive place you've visited so far. Hope you guys aren't too broke. Can't wait you see you again, be safe.
