After returning to the airport, I had a couple more hours to wait until boarding a direct flight from Tokyo to Newark. That flight was 12 hours although it was scheduled for 13 hours. Arriving in Newark, I took the airport bus into Manhattan to Grand Central Station and then the MetroNorth railway to Ossining. The taxi ride from the Ossining station to Maryknoll turned out to be $8 now, quite a jump from $5 in October. Then I found that the access number given me for the door to the building wouldn’t work and it took me an hour to find someone who could let me in.
