The Japanese flight from San Francisco to Tokyo was very comfortable. We had four seats for the two of us. The meals were abundant and delicious. It was interesting to see all the signs in Japanese.

Upon arriving we were greeted at the gate by Father Onyema who introduced us to the outgoing General and the incoming one! Our heads were spinning as Father drove us (on the left side of the road) to the Air Force Base. The coast line seems to be crowded: casinos, hotels, but also palm trees, magnolias (or so it seemded in the dark). The US Navy has several bases there too. Signs in Japanese only everywhere! It seemed unreal.

A nice big fruit basket welcomed us in our Air Force Inn one bedroom appartment. Program for tomorrow: visit of the chapel, tour of the island in a 4 seats Cesna! Yeah! Welcome to the tropics!
