Early the next morning our group was leaving for #Tokyo, a 3 hour drive.
We heard there was a #typhoon expected. A typhoon! We didn't have those back at #home. We were excited for the big city, we'd only spent a day there before heading to outside prefectures.
We hauled our luggage. We said our goodbyes to our homestay families, everyone had a package under their arm, a big parting gift. I got a blue and white cotton kimono from Kyoko in a pattern that looked like a barcode.
We found our seats on the bus. We were tired.
Outside the tour bus, the red eyed local girls stood in a row. Waving handkerchiefs, #crying. Devastated. For Chad.
