That was a very long day. Literally. I left Japan on January 29th at 3pm and arrived in Portland on January 29th at 7am. TIME TRAVEL.
Customs officer: ‘Morning miss.
Allison: Good morning.
Custom’s officer: Where are you coming from?
Custom’s Officer: And how long were you there for?
Allison: 5 months.
Custom’s officer: … (very long pause, skeptical face) …What exactly were you doing there for so long?
Allison: Oh, I’m an exchange student.
Custom’s officer: Oh thats great! Well, we’re glad to have you back!
Ahahaha that was the easiest time in Custom’s I have ever had! The guys in Seattle are so rude. Anyways, it was a nice arrival. My parents were waiting with flowers & big hugs. : ) We went out for breakfast at a local diner and then my mom and I spent the afternoon in downtown Portland. I managed to stay awake until 5pm and then passed out until 7am this morning.
Hahaha. This is a little surreal.
