the earth was shakin'
apparently October is earthquake season. there was 5.0 quake on Sunday with the epicenter practically right under my neighborhood. there was a 6.5 quake tonight north of tokyo.
Kevin tells me that you know you've adjusted when you don't even stop class for an earth quake. you just steady yourself as you write on the board.
the Japanese are remarkably nonplussed about earthquakes. so it's a measure of how native you've gone by how little you care that the whole world is shaking and about to fall down on top of you. by this respect I'm slipping into my Japanese skin well. as long as nothing is breaking I have faith in Japanese archintechure to keep the buildings from falling down on me.
I add a new website if you want for info or updates:
