Peter:

I'll be sure to visit Canada next March. I'll stay in Whistler and Vancouver for a week. See you again.


Thanks Shiroi-Tora

Where in Shikoku did you live? I'm in Matsuyama city. I've been to Philippines and stayed in Manila for a week in 1986. How muggy in the jungle? It would be more than I imagine. I just pray for people who are struggling to solve the nuclear crisis.

Looks like you have finally found summer but here in western Canada we are still waiting! Peter

As I am writing this, I am sitting in an air conditioned room. I suffer greatly in high heat and high humidity. I am more of a cool to cold weather person.

I have been in Japanese summers (Osaka and Shikoku). Although it wasn't so bad as some I have experienced (Philippines in summer - in the jungle - Army), I know that of which you speak. It still can be quite uncomfortable. You are fortunate to be out of the heat and humidity.

I feel for the afflicted Japanese of the Tsunami. I hope your Government has its rebuilding plans in motion. It will take a while...but with proper steps taken by the Govt., they will be able to rebuild...and this time with wide road access to the hillsides where they may evacuate in such a future event.

There also exists 15m platforms that sit atop concrete pillars that can double as community centers with views and with capacities in the many hundreds. They could be erected in strategic spots throughout such places as was hit. I have a friend in Washington State that is a Civil Engineer. He had written up a strategy for Tsunamis on the West Coast of the US. He had pictures of these platforms and of where their placement could be in a seaside community in this particular city (I cannot find his article - I wanted to include the pictures for you). Anyway...so long as people come first in the government's mind...appropriate steps and contingencies will be taken and planned for.
