The slow boat to China
The view from the deck. Our first evening, sunrise, after dinner. The sea in Japan is beautiful, dotted with soft little islands rising gracefully above the surface, a friendly green. That's Amber and some mysterious teenage girl who spoke Japanese and silently wrote her diary in Chinese in the smoking section. a 16 year old smoking menthols on the boat to China. Isn't that everyone's dream summer vacation. Taking the ship to China from Japan for 50 hours to visit family. Like a road trip in parallelia.
