Just back to Washington after a long trip back from Tokyo.
Our plane got diverted for an emergency landing to Anchorage, Alaska after a person on board was felled by a serious stroke.
My bags were lost — but I did meet behind the baggage counter a friend I have not seen in nearly 20 years.
That followed running around the Imperial Palace yesterday morning at 6:00 a.m. and having a Japanese guy walk up to me after my run while I was looking at the koi in the Imperial moat wondering whether I was “that blogger who writes ‘The Note.’ Gratifying — but now exhausted.
Lots to report — tomorrow.
