We are in Okinawa and we are LOVING it!!! We got some cool phones today, went to the beach, ate at a popular restraunt, and just enjoyed seeing everything. The flights out here were not bad at all. We flew out of Seattle on Thursday morning and when we got to mainland Japan it was Friday morning at 11. Then we had a delay because they had a broken coffee pot on the plane but we finally made it to Kadena AB, Okinawa around 5pm Friday. That was seriously the longest day of my life! I had talked to a friend here and she waited on us at the airport, took us to the hotel and then to Dustin's headquarters so he could sign-in, then back to our hotel. We had a fire alarm go off just about the time we were going to bed, that was pretty interesting. Turns out somebody burnt popcorn which set off the fire alarm. The lights went off and there was a beeping sound and a recording that said "The fire alarm has been activated. Please wait for further instructions" This next week we are going to a housing brief, taking the drivers test, and buying a car! We heard the housing wait is only a week or maybe less so we are hoping we can get in a house sometime this week too!
