We left Ami and are now in Kyoto! Our trip started today and I will admit the trip did not start out well. I had lost my voice on Thursday and not recovered it and I had developed a horrible cough that kept me up on Saturday night. I finally had to take some medicine to fall asleep so when I woke up I was super groggy.
Hiromi took Andrea and I to the train station but first we stopped at McDonalds to get some breakfast; Andrea bit into a hash brown and somehow managed to crack her wisdom tooth. This did not register in my mind because the medicine was still in effect. We made it to the train station and got on the train to head to Tokyo where we going to get on the Bullet Train. On the train Andrea started to get super hot, nauseous, and almost passed out.
We made it to the Bullet Train and got on. OH MY G
We arrived in Kyoto and went to our hotel and proceeded to plan our trip. We decided that we would go to the Gion District and watch a show about the traditional Japanese Arts that night, the next day we would head to Hiroshima and Miyajima, Tuesday we would take the one-day tour of Kyoto, Wednesday we would go to Himeji, and on Thursday we would go do touristy things before leaving.
