I haven’t mentioned this on the blog yet, because I was a bit preoccupied with the earthquake and the crisis Japan is in at the moment (plus, I needed to get my visa), but I am leaving for China tomorrow. I am not leaving because I am trying to escape from Japan, this trip has been planned for a long time way before the earthquake hit. It is a one week vacation to Shanghai. I think I have figured out how to get to Narita airport with the train situation being the way it is. So – I might not be able to update the blog for the next week since I will be in Shanghai, and I have no idea what webpages might be blocked in China. So basically – if you do not see any updates here for the next week it does not mean that I have been harmed or hurt, it probably just means that I made it to China ok!
Again, I am not leaving because I want to get out of Japan, things here are, as I have mentioned earlier, quite ok in Tokyo. I just spoke to my school today, classes will start as normal in the beginning of April. Everything is fine with me, there is no need to worry. I will try to update from China, but I am not sure yet about what time and availability there will be to the internet.
Hope you are all doing ok, and sending some good thoughts to the parts of Japan which are affected by the current situation.
