Shinzo Abe ruled out speculation that his government might water down Japan’s official apologies for aggression and the use of sex slaves during World War II. What’s behind the shift in tone?
Flight for Seoul leaves at 2 am. Haven’t slept more than two hours in the last 48 because of the overnight bus and a Chinese man on our first flight who stank of cigarette smoke and sweat and insisted on elbowing into my personal space every time I got close to nodding off.
They didn’t want to let us through immigration because we don’t have visas to be in China…except we had to go out to the baggage claim to get our stuff since it wasn’t checked all the way through to Seoul. This situation would have gone over much better if I wasn’t already cranky.
Thank god for milk tea and cafes that take Visa.
