Sitting in the lobby of the Hotel Shin’Osaka. Finally got internet access working, but I’m too tired to write much. Both flights were pretty good, although there was a bit of turbulence descending into Kansai International.Exchanged our JR passes and caught the train into Osaka. Got lost, but a kind lady directed us – domo arigato gozaimasu.
So hungry, but the local places were either too forbidding for addled brains or closing for the night. Ended up in Lotteria at the JR Shin-Osaka station eating shrimp and fish burgers and chips. Disgustingly gaijin of me and really I would have preferred local food, but it tasted great!
Hotel room is small, but quite nice and with a bum washing seat warming toilet and strong hot shower. I’m happy with it.
Okay, battery running flat and if I don’t sleep my awful cold will never disappear.
