Golden Week Volunteering 2012: Part 2 –Revisiting Rikuzentakata

Things had not changed terribly much since I went in September, but for those who had not been back since last year golden week, they could see how much clearing had been done since…

Golden Week Volunteering 2012: Part 1 - Sanriku Ditches

I went back to Ofunato this golden week. This time however I was in a rather large company of ALTs who wanted to join me. There were two who had been before but all the rest were first timers.


Love Rock 7 2012-04-21 @ Trust55

This is not so much of a live report really. Franky was having another Love Rock event and Quintet performance was going to be getting back together for it. I had been busy for the last few so I made a special point of going to this one.
