it`s wednesday now (i just had to check that on a calendar because i have completely lost track of time), which makes it five days since the earthquake. i am trying as best as possible to ignore hysterical newscasts via the US and elsewhere, but it gets difficult when there isn`t much else to do in tokyo besides religiously stare at the internets.
the best thing to do is to get out of the house. we are occupying ourselves with long walks and bike rides, taking pictures, and talking to friends who have also chosen to stay. it`s beautiful here. people are getting their footing again, and i`m glad to be a part of it.
and, no, i am not radioactive.
