I saw in the paper today that most embassy staff have returned and are back to normal function. Travel restrictions have been lifted. The danger zone around Fukushima has been narrowed. Apparently, current radiation levels in Tokyo are only half what they are in Moscow. Most of the stuff in the paper is heart-breaking but that one made me smile.
People are still sharing “Where were you?” stories and my favorite so far is a friend who was in the tub at the gym. Imagine. Like you don’t feel vulnerable enough when you’re naked and wet.
