Home Sweet Home

And how sweet it is. 

Ahh coming home last night at 12:30 at night, after a 36 hour day that began at 2:30 in the morning in China and ended after 10 hours of layover and 3 flights, being in my own home, in my own bed, felt like heaven. 

We traveled to Tokyo, Japan, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and then finally home to B-lo. The cool part about going to these airports was able to eat sushi in Japan (!) and I was able to eat at the French Meadow Bakery Cafe (who I have done a product review for…..awesome breads) in Minneapolis. So, aside from being the longest day of my life (literally), being able to have some awesome eats made up for it in a way.

We visited a “peasant” village (and I use the term peasant lightly as this was a really nice little living area, the houses actually resembled little condos and we were definitely not out in the country) and two families cooked lunch for us.
