The first steps of our journey are planned and ready to go.
We leave from Fargo, ND on Wednesday morning, 1/12/10. First stop is Minneapolis, and then non-stop to Tokyo where we'll be staying overnight, hopefully to sleep and get refreshed. No time for any sight seeing there, because the next morning we'll be off to Kuala Lumpur, arriving at about 6:30 pm on Friday.
Sarah has booked us tickets to Jakarta, where she promised to meet us at the airport and drag us (we will surely be zombies by then - about 11:15pm) to an airport hotel where we can become human again. She is in charge of the plans, and has surprises up her sleeve! She's not divulging much at this point but whatever we do, it will be different from being in northern Minnesota in January!!
It's getting exciting! I think I'll go see how my packing is progressing!
