Dear Friends in Japan and all the world, thank you so much for your concern and messages!

The situation is slowly but sureley improving:
The government officially announced that the worst scenario, e.g. a complete meltdown, has been avoided. Of course they keep pouring seawater into the reactors to cool them down and re-install electricity that will keep the whole thing safe again!

Life is almost normal where I live in Shizuoka in spite of the general psychosis unresponsibly spread by the Embassies of France (my own country!), Germany, Switzerland, US and others. Take what they say with a big pinch of salt!

On the other hand, incredible efforts are poured into organizing help and commodities at all costs.
In our own Prefecture of Shizuoka, reputedly the most dangerous region (the whole of Japan is dangerous, full point…) has been organizing help since Saturday 12th under the orders of Governor Kawakatsu who has certainly shown more speed and concern than some “politicians” up in Tokyo!

I’ll keep you informed and will answer all your questions, but there is no need to over worry!
Helping people in the North East of Japan and rebuilding the country is more important!

Yes, they can!
