Volunteering in Fukushima-

Jun 01 2012

Hi everyone,

8 of us traveled north of Fukushima to volunteer with a relief
organization.  We helped an 80 yr. old woman by shoveling 5 tons of
rock away from the back of her house.  We spent the night, then rented
a car to drive further north to visit some devastated sites.  It’s
unbelievable.

Today, the 31st, the crew is trickling into the Sea Dragon, one by
one.  The plan is to have everyone on the boat tonight.  We’ll spend
tomorrow going through immigration, then depart early on the 2nd.

Cheers,
