2011 Japan EarthquakeHey everyone,
I'm sure that most of you have heard about the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan. For those who have been reading my blog, I was just over in Japan about 3 weeks ago so I am really lucky that I'm back safe in Australia. I first heard about the news when people were posting it on twitter, so straight away I started streaming the news online live from Japan. At first I thought it was all okay, since I heard that the earthquake hit around Tokyo and buildings there were designed to be able to stand up in earthquakes. It wasn't until the tsunami hit Sendai, that's where the damage was so great that I couldn't believe it. Straight away I messaged all my friends over in Japan, hoping that they were all safe. Luckily all of them replied telling me that they're safe.
For now, I just hope that everyone stays strong there and hope that everyone does their best to help Japan out. Tomorrow the Japanese club at my university which I am with is running a fundraiser BBQ so lets hope it goes well!
