Oops! The last message seems to have disappeared.

I have a room on the 11th floor with a nice view of the monorail station and a construction site. We can meet in the lobby any time.

Don't wait until tomorrow to for something you can do today

After a very busy March I am finally at HND. Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!

This year we are not planning any very structured activities because everyone has varying levels of experience with Okinawa and interests. I know The Wrath Of Khan will probably be able to suggest a variety of outdoor activities, and I can also advise some sights. Ask us tonight at the evening drinks dojo!

Just sent off my +1 at PVG T1 for her flight, and lining up at PVG T2 for mine. I hope neither of our flights will be delayed!

Lunch for Aeolus and me opposite Himeyuri Memorial. It was quite an adventure getting here. Hopefully less adventure getting back.

A fun adventure, got a true taste of Okinawa (literally!). Decided to order from the picture (first dish) and it was stir fried tofu with surprise SPAM!

On the way to Naha, will post where we end up eating dinner, but trying to grab something before the DOJO bar. If not we can go eat afterwards. See everyone at 7!

I woke up at 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep. After an expedition to Himeyuri Monument with Aeolus I sat in this massage chair for 5 minutes and fell asleep. I woke up and had no idea where I was.
