Kadena AB Okinawa

Well I doubt I'll be posting any new pictures from Okinawa. I've been off the base a few times but haven't gone anywhere new. I don't have enough time to myself to venture anywhere very far from here.
I'll be leaving here for home next week on Tuesday the 30th. I'll be arriving in Houston at 8:30pm. I fly from here to Tokyo then to Chicago and on to Houston...its going to be a very long day. With any luck all will go well. I haven't been to Chicago in a long time. I'm not looking forward to going through immigration and customs there. I hope that all goes quickly and smoothly.

I believe this will be my last trip this year...I can never be too sure. I am looking forward to spending some time at home. I've done enough traveling this year. I've had fun but it is time to quit. Australia was fun and I had a fairly good time on Saipan. This trip has been ok but nothing special. I'm sure I'll be back here someday.

Saipan

The last week in September I was on Saipan shooting school pictures. My last day there I had a chance to get around the island and take some pictures.

The first pictures are of Japan's last command post on Saipan.


The next two are pictures of shrines located at Bonzai Cliff.


Last here are some shots of the coastline on the east side of the island.

Okinawa

Hello from Okinawa!

I've been here about one week but I have no pictures to post. I've spent most of my time here on Kadena AB.
At the moment I'm trying create a new post but the Blogger website is in Japanese. That makes this a bit confusing.
I have been off the base a few of times, twice to go to Camp Foster and once or twice to go to a favorite bar on Gate 2 Street, Al's Place. It's a bit of a dive but the people are friendly. I'm not sure what I'll be doing for the next couple of weeks...I'm hoping to get off this base again...we'll see.
