Hello from Nagoya, Japan

Eerily quiet Narita airport, with moving walkway blocked off

Despite my family's worries and plead to come home, in midst of the earthquake chaos, I trudged along and finally made it to Nagoya, Japan.

My flight from Chicago to Japan's Narita airport was diverted to Anchorage, Alaska, and we were grounded for a whole day.

Through sadness and the unknown, I have made some new friends, and was touched by the generosity of the strangers I came across during the time, and the trip ended up being a very pleasant experience.

I am now in Nagoya, Japan, about 175 miles southwest of Tokyo.

Platform for Narita Express - train schedule is back to normal, going south

I'm alive and well

Peaceful and quiet suburb in Chiba Prefecture
