The flight was a breeze and Georgia, for a two year old, was a dream. It was like she'd been doing it for years. Horrible early morning start though. The flight was due to depart about 9am which meant getting to the airport by 7am. The pre-booked cab was waiting for us at 6.30am but it took a good 10 minutes or so to take the bags down and load them. Most expensive cab ride to the airport ever. $37. Usually $25 max. That's what happens when the taxi has to hang around waiting for you I guess.
During the 10 hour flight Georgia watched a movie and giggled all the way through it. She'd walk down the aisles to the toilets with us to stretch our legs. She napped a little but all in all, as I mentioned above, she was a dream to travel with.

Because I'd spent 10 minutes or organising our bags Georgia sat in my seat and ate a sandwich. When I was done mucking around with the bags I thought I'd get my seat back. "No daddy, away". Okay, after being an angel for the the flight I think I can stand and let her sit this time.

No Daddy, you can't sit
It's been 3 years since we've been in Tokyo but everything seems oh so familiar. This, I hope, is a good sign.
Georgia waved bye bye to the taxi and we checked in to the Monterey. The booking was honoured and a room on level ...., for 75800 yen (about 15000 yen per night), would be our home for the next 5 nights. Just before we headed up stairs the concierge gave me a letter. It was the data SIM I'd ordered for my phone. I'd completely forgotten about that.

It was still reasonably early so it was time to eat.
