So as many of you have seen on the TV or the internet, a magnitude 8.9 earthquake hit about 80 miles off the coast of Sendai, Japan. Over the following 3 hours about 13 6+ magnitude aftershocks also hit. Sendai was hit by a catastrophic tsunami, Tokyo ground to a halt, lots of chaos. I just wanted to let you all know that I am fine, my wife and the rest of my family and friends in Osaka and Tokyo are all ok. Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and queries via email and twitter.
