I’m on the ferry from Hachinohe. The ship is pitching and rolling with the ocean swells. Passengers are stumbling around like they’ve just wandered out of a pub at 2am.
Everyone else is feeling nauseated. I tell them this feels exactly like losing one inner ear. Staggering and ill, dizzy from the world moving. For whatever reason I feel just fine. Acclimation? Schadenfreude.
