Day 5 after the quake.
I'm still in Tokyo and my family – at least women and children – in Kobe. So far, so good.
People – Foreigners such as Japanese – are apparently divided into two camps: The, have more afraid of the aftershocks, and the, have more fear of nuclear. I belonged to the second group, But the powerful quake last night (Yamanashi/Shizuoka) and at noon today (Chiba) let me momentarily drift off to the first group.
