Five years since the disaster


It's been exactly five years since the earthquake struck in Tohoku, causing a tsunami and nuclear meltdown.

I don't really have anything much to say about it all, or rather, I have too much to say that really isn't relevant. I have been fortunate and never suffered from the disaster, it's others who had it worse who should be in our thoughts now.

I did write a book (well, actually an illustrated essay) about travelling around Tohoku to talk to survivors of the tsunami last year. And to commemorate the fifth anniversary, I'm giving it away for free from Amazon for the next few days.

If you'd like a copy of the book, Children of the Tsunami, click here and click on one of the links at the bottom of the post to download it.
