Preparing To Leave
Tara started preparing to leave Tokyo six months ahead of time. She used the weekends to organize photos and investiage world travel options. However, on June ?th, the day before the movers came, Seth took over and made sure we slept in our bed before packing it away in storage.
Our Last Week
We must thank Tara's colleague Kondo san for opening our eyes to the official company time off policy for people relocating internationally. When we moved from London to Tokyo, Tara took no time off at all beyond what was absolutely necessary. Stupid!! For this relocation, she made sure to take the full five business days allocated to anyone relocating internationally. It was so nice to have Seth's last day in the Tokyo office be on Wednesday, May 31st and then Tara's last office day on Friday, June 2nd because we weren't flying to Chicago until Friday, June 9th.
We made lots of friends while we lived in Tokyo and we tried to make an effort to say 300good-bye to everyone.
