Reverse culture shock...

So...after much deliberation, I decided to toss in the towel and come home.

I arrived in San Francisco on Thursday, the 4th. Although...I still haven't fully recovered. My flight left Tokyo at 6pm on the 4th, and arrived at 9am....on the 4th. Hard one to wrap my head around!

I'm still feeling considerably exhausted and more than a little bit disoriented, so my writing abilities are shoddy, at best. But I felt it necessary to at least make a note of my early return to the states. I'll write a more detailed account of my reasoning and all that preceded this, just as soon as my head returns to normal...
