A Few Poignant Links

Below are a few of the better articles/pages we have found and have been relying on for timely info (as we cannot rely on the Japanese Government or Media at this point). If you know of any others, please post them in the comments for us and others to check out.

We will try to post more about our experiences a little later today, as the rolling blackout was canceled for Aomori City today for some reason, so we have a bit more time. Until then...

Here is a much more comprehensive list of ways to help Japan:

  1. Dear Rick & Michie,
    We are so thankful that you are both safe and sound. We think of you every day and are happy that we can read about what you are up to via this blog! The instant we heard about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on Friday morning we immediately rushed to the computer to see the map and knew you had probably somehow been affected.

    You both are in our thoughts and prayers, along with your family, friends and all of Japan. We pray that you can remain safe and healthy amidst all of the uncertainty there right now.

    We love and miss you both!! xxoo Alanna & Tim
