Trying to hitch-hike by air (also known as jumpseating) to Tokyo! Was sick and didn't get to update my shots, so must wait for Thailand another time. Very sad about that, as I have the most interesting friend there... But after 3 weeks of getting to work at 1 or 3 am and fighting a sore throat, had to get out of town! Made it to San Fransisco, and it's off to bed for now. 747 to Narita tomorrow morning!
