We made it to Kyoto after a 1.5 hour bus trip from Kansai airport. The first thing that you notice is without a doubt the temperature which is, well, Dam Hot! And sticky! That is still a bit of a shock to the system but I am hoping that I will become at least a little bit more tolerant of the heat. Anyways, after arriving at Kay's parents we had a good ol' family get together. Kay's parents, sister, brother-in-law, Nephew, along with the 4 of us. We made Gyoza's, drank beer and had a good laugh. At least part of that laughter was due to my terribly inadequate Japanese. I know a little bit but unfortunately I am using the phrases that I know in the wrong situation to everyone else's amusement. I'm trying though. So, It was a great night getting to know Kay's family.
