Flying into Narita/Visiting Phuc in Taito

My first overseas travelling experience was so amazing! Let me start from the beginning. My partners in crime were Giang, Chris, Christine, Jimmy, and my boyfriend Minh. We bought our tickets through Singapore Airlines for only $674. I was very impressed with all of the food we got and the entertainment they offered. We got a pretty good selection of movies to choose from including foreign films. I, of course had to watch a korean film. I love films that can make me cry so I chose to watch "Sad Story" and boy, was it SAD. It definitely had me bawling at the end. Those koreans sure know how to make sad movies! The flight attendants were very polite and friendly. Another cool thing about Singapore Airlines is they hand out hot towels to wipe your face before and at the end of the flight.
Even though I probably should have slept more on the flight, I ended up watching a few more movies (all of which I couldn't finish because they were so bad ie. Elizabethtown and a few other foreign films) and playing the games they had. They had a few interactive games you could play with other passengers. I challenged Minh to a round of mini-golf and won but he "claimed" he got nauseous and was getting a headache. Minh always plays the motion sickness card!
Before I knew it, we had landed at Narita Airport! We filed off of the airplane and went through Customs which was not as painful as I thought it would be.
After an uneventful ride, we arrived at Taito. Luckily, Phuc told us that his apartment is right across the street from the train station. As we stepped out, we heard someone calling us.
Phuc set up beds for us and we all crashed on his floor. It was actually quite comfy. Since Phuc only had 1 bathroom we split up shower time. Giang, Christine, and Jimmy took showers that night. I was so tired I crashed immediately. The last thing I remember hearing was Minh who was about to use the bathroom after Phuc did #2 and saying how it stank so bad he might as well piss outside. HAHHA.
