Kansai International Airport is on an artificial island. This means to go to it you must cross a roughly three kilometer bridge that is completely over the ocean. I drove over it for the first time. On a nice day, the wind would be fairly strong but I imagine the scenery quite nice. I drove over it in what one would call pre-typhoon weather.
It was terrifying.
Having only one car accident in my life can be attributed to many things, but that does not stop the memories from coming back. Whether or not the cold I have now is a result of the stress I felt during this drive I cannot say, but it is amazing how feelings can return like that.
