First week thoughts

So, I've been attempting to write this post for the past two days (It's Tuesday here in Japan). It hasn't really been the easiest thing in all honesty. But I'll try to explain it the best I can. My time in Japan so far has been pretty interesting. The Asian Rural Institute is a pretty busy place, and it's been awesome to be a part of it so far. I've only been here a week, and in that time a lot has happened.

First off, to everyone that has heard about the recent earthquake here in Japan, I want you to know that I'm okay. The earthquake happened off of the coast of Fukushima. I'm is located in Tochigi prefecture, which is directly south of Fukushima, but further inland. So in terms of the tsunami, there is nothing to worry about in my case. As for the earthquake, there wasn't really any damage here at the ARI. If anything, the earthquake was a really startling alarm clock. But again, thank you for your messages and prayers. It means the world to me.
