Beautiful evening in Mid Finland. After our set, we drove to the airport outside of Helsinki and went to sleep for three hours then back to the airport and off to Heathrow.
The flight from Helsinki to Heathrow was uneventful… and Heathrow was, as always, very crowded. The flight was a non stop from London to an Francisco as an eleven hour non stop. Old airplane, crowded… seats big enough for an eight year old… good times. We made it though and so did all our luggage and guitars. Really good times.
My first stop after we checked into the hotel was the Mifune in Japan Town. Tanin Soba and pickled vegetables. Yummy…
A quick hello to the Pagoda after dinner and then to the hotel for some much needed sleep.
After a yummy breakfast in the hotel, Barry and I took a walk around.
Walking around… enjoying being back home in the States and doing our darnedest to beat the jet lag.
Good times… Onward!
