(Almost) Home

LAX. 2:54 PM. 22 hours of traveling and counting. Attempting to stay awake during a 6-hour layover before a late afternoon flight to Seattle.

Carly, Kevin, and I parted ways this morning in Los Angeles, providing a symbolic end to our Japan-South Korea adventure despite additional flight time for Carly and I. After almost four weeks of traveling, scheming, eating, and drinking together, I'm not entirely prepared to make decisions without group consensus or navigate without the triple-check provided by my worldly companions. (Luckily, I return to my laidback, familiar Seattle neighborhood not the bustling, twisting Tokyo subway).

Not one to typically embrace clich├ęs, my jet-lagged brain struggles to express "experience of a life time" in more precise words. A sincere thanks to and for all those who we met along the way. Your hospitality and eager conversations allowed the exchange to be one of ideas and affection not just debate arguments. A special thanks to Kevin and Carly. Y'all rock. Learning about each of you and from you was an honor.

In the next few days, we'll update the missing pieces of our journey on the blog. Until then, sayonara Japan-US Debate Exchange 2005.

Thanks for the welcome
Christmas Day falls on December 25. It is preceded by Christmas Eve on December 24, and in some countries is followed by Boxing Day on December 26. Some Eastern Orthodox Churches celebrate Christmas on January 7, which corresponds to December 25 on the Julian calendar. December 25 as a birthdate for Jesus is merely traditional, and is not thought to be his actual date of birth. Much respect!

The present generation seem unwilling to realize by slow and sure degrees; but choose rather to set their whole hopes upon a single cast, which either makes or mars them forever!
