They also gave us food vouchers, and in the land of parenting teenage boys that's gold. We've had quite a feast and everyone's been pretty happy. Right now we're back in the check-in line and it's a long one. But time is something we're not short of tonight. Energy and tempers might be short tomorrow, though, as we'll probably not be home much before 2.30am.

One of those air travel stories
We're in the midst of one of those air travel stories. We've been at the airport for over five hours and still have more than three hours to wait. As we left the conference we received an email saying our 6pm flight had been cancelled. When we arrived at the check-in counter they said we could get onto a flight at 11.10pm or book into a hotel and fly tomorrow afternoon. Not sure if they would have paid for a hotel but we decided to wait for tonight's flight. The challenge is that Tokyo trains don't run much after midnight. Thankfully the company will pay for a taxi, the first time we've ever taken a taxi in Tokyo.
