With hardly a hitch, we've arrived in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Twenty-two hours in airplanes (on the ground and in the air) and very few psychological scars to show for it. Our first flight was delayed leaving O'Hare, but not too much, and it meant that we had a fairly short wait in Tokyo.
TM held up like a seasoned traveller. He was very entertained by Japan Airlines' video options and the video games... even watching the Hannah Montana show in the Disney channel, at least twice through.
Tomorrow should be low stress, but first, we sleep.
