So, This Is Crazy

I believe I have written before about my good luck on stumbling across

Eli has been arranging astonishingly cheap Business Class flights for me over the last few years. When I left gainful employ, I thought I would never fly Business again – too expensive. It has not worked out like that.

This time Eli has excelled himself. I get ANA First Class over to Tokyo and only Business Class returning to San Francisco in a couple of months. Fare is only a few hundred bucks more than a normal Economy flight on one of the quality airlines.

A  long First Class flight on ANA is about as close as my feeble brain can get to envisaging heaven.

I am the only passenger in First Class.

Entry into Japan is still verboten except to citizens and permanent residents.

Two wonderful attendants, Toma san and Yuma san, have only me to look after and by golly they work hard. I have 2 rooms, one for eating and hanging out, the other is my bedroom!

Why me? What am I doing here?

I believe that since Naoko san and Miki san restored my soul, the Gods of Okinawa have been looking after me and have made my life a long, tranquil river of pleasure. 

I have one of the best meals ever, washed down by some of the world’s best wines. Hard to believe I am on a  plane.

I drink a lot of this
I ate it all. It took hours!
Amuse Gueles
Still on Champagne

Yes please
Sashimi! Notice turbulence.
Clear soup. Amazing
It keeps coming.
Cheese! Not in keeping but I have a bottle of Chambertin handy.

I have to lie down!

In my ANA jim-jams!

I have slept off most of it when Toma san wakes me for breakfast. She offers me the best wines in the world but it is the morning. I turn them down. Have I finally grown up?

Corn Flakes

As I stumble towards Immigration in Tokyo, I feel a tap on my shoulder. It is Toma san. She has my computer. I had left it on the plane.

Thank you Gods of Okinawa.

Thank you ANA

Thank you Toma san and Yuma san

Thank you Eli

Now for lots of Okinawa Summer fun!
