I arrived in Tokyo on a Friday night (TGIF) and a party was going strong at the Marine House. Needless to say, when I left Kathmandu I was once again sick, as
only a person living in a third world country can experience, and was not in the mood for parting. I left Tokyo on new years day 1979 and arrived back in San Francisco a few hours before I left Tokyo.
(You know, I crossed the date line)
