Dad takes his first business trip to Japan in 1981 and has a surprise reunion with his family in Egypt on the way back. In between, he learns that you don't drain the tub, toilet seats are for tourists, and the Japanese government will pay you to literally push people.
In 1985, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger tells dad he can't understand his accent. Not much has changed since as his daily battles to phone in his prescription drugs demonstrate. Dad talks about a couple of vacations with Gary including his first trip to Disney when Uncle Rafaat had a brilliant plan to figure out where they parked the car. And nothing says warm memories like former U.S. President Richard Nixon.
