Okay, so my dad, siblings, and I all made it to Japan in one piece, after a 22 hour day of plan trips. Unfortunately my mum has had to stay in another city while the airline gets our cats to us. Apparently the control for the heat in the hold wasn't working so they weren't able to take any animals on our flight, so that is a day in which mum will stay slightly south of Tokyo. The airline was incredibly gracious though, they had set up accomodations for everyone but my dad, who would have had to continue anyways, in a nearby hotel. All in all it went pretty well. *Whew* I will try to catch up with the posts tomarrow... hopefully.
