50 years ago

September 2, 2016:

It was appropriate that I woke up this morning dreaming I was in Japan and speaking Japanese, for it was 50 years ago today that June and I, along with Keith and Kathy, woke up for the first time on Japanese soil.

We arrived in Yokohama Harbor early on the morning of September 1 after our delightful 13-day trip across the Pacific Ocean aboard the President Cleveland steamship.

That first day and the first week was an exciting and enjoyable time, and it is hard to believe that it was 50 years ago.
