As this post goes up, our airplane will be taking off from Nagoya International Airport. After much contemplation and deliberation, we have decided to return to America to pursue our education, careers and family life. To be able to live in Japan was the fulfillment of a dream for us- but right now our dreams are taking us back home. It is, therefore, with deep sadness (this blog really grew on me . . . ), that I close 'From the Far East', a blog that focused on our adventures in Japan.
BUT, as the Japanese saying goes, "goodbye is only a new beginning" and I will be starting a new blog once we get settled into our American lives. Stay tuned for more musings, as I'm confident that adventure can be found anywhere . . .
