Sunday 20

Due to return to Tokyo, I head out to the airport only to be told that my flight has been cancelled due to the earthquake. I couldn’t understand if they were referring to the big one, or just some aftershock. I now fly at 6am tmrw

Receive a mail from my step-sister who informs me that the British Embassy is giving out potassium iodide pills, why are they doing that, and why haven’t they told me? I registered with them, so they have my e-mail….

Official death toll is now at 8,450 with 12,931 missing.
