We Survived the Big Quake in Japan, March 11, 2011

12 03 2011

We are so lucky to have all survived the big quake. No friends in peril either although my wife has several employees wondering about their families that live near the epicenter. Here are a couple of pictures from downtown Yokohama the morning after. Taken from a fellow teacher at Yokohama International School. The people of Japan were so helpful and calm through the event in Tokyo and Yokohama. A few people died in this area but we were all spared the worst of it. Although it was only a couple hundred klm north.

Hi Scott, we were very lucky. I am humbled by the generosity of the community. Everyone is doing their thing to help. Our school has been cancelled for the next three weeks. We were on spring holiday starting next week anyway. Yokohama got away pretty much unscathed. Minimal damage.
