Where I stayed

Flag of Japan  , Kinki,
Friday, March 11, 2011

apparently there has been an earthquake. Now you might be wondering why I am the last to her about this being where I am.... I've been out sightseeing then making my way to Osaka today - where I did notice that the trains were a bit chaotic, an at one place everyone was watching a tv of something burning. As I couldn't understand it I had no idea what was going on until I got to the hotel and had a message off Helena to ring her asap. I thought something had happened at home, so she told me what happened! I've also had several other messages, from my dear concerned friends but also from my ex which I'm not happy about.

So, I will post up today's official news later on, but I'm absolutely fine chaps... Fear not. Back to China on 13th.

9:45pm: Thanks for all the messages of concern! There's really nothing to see here in Osaka..I've been looking at pictures my mates in Tokyo hostel have posted they have something to see!  Don't worry about me...I'm hard as nails, ain't nothing going to upset this trip... ;-)

Hey hun

so glad you're okay. I remember that feeling - I was there when 9/11 happened and probably didn't really understand what had happened until people from home were getting in touch to tell me about it.

Just ignore the stuff and people you don't wanna hear from..keep enjoying your trip, sounds like you are getting so much out of it x
