maybe later ....

Dear sisters ..... I have to admit I do feel a bit down today. To think that I could have been strolling on the bustling streets in Shibuya right now, chatting with my dear Japanese sisters and slurping up my favourite ramen, yes yes believe it or not, I really feel pumped up by the rush, the noise and the crowds in Tokyo :) Instead I am stuck in frigid cold wilderness, unpacking my lugguage and emailing my dear sisters that we had to wait a little longer to see each other again. Yes, I am talking about cancelling my return trip to Japan at the last minute, quite a disappointment (let alone wasting all the planning efforts!)

Normally, I am not a big travelling enthusiast (I am still amazed at how our old bones could survive those 7 side trips to neighbouring countries during our 2 1/2 years stay in Japan!), but going to Japan is like 'going home' to me. I miss the sight, the sound, the taste, the feel of Japan and most of all, the dear friends I've made there. Well, maybe later .....

Hi Jaime,

You are blessed!! Today a huge earthquaquake hit a large part of Honshu. It was really big and long even in Kanto area that we have never experienced.
All trans and subways stopped running and the government advices to stay in the office, so my daughter witll stay in her office building with her colleagues.

We are ok and so is our house, only a few books fell from the shelf.

Talk to you later.

Hi Jaime!
I am really worried about that quake and the tsunami..I'm still trembling while writing this. I pray that it didn't claim many lives. oh dear..
Sorry to hear about your impending trip. You must have missed your friends and the life in Japan so much. Take care.
