    Hey Dinh,

    The only news I understand is from CNN, and they haven't said anything about it. I'll check with the crew later if they have any news. If there was one, I didn't feel anything.

    Yep...we felt it pretty good in Yokohama yesterday. Had the whole family under the kitchen table, but no damage, thankfully.

    Unhappy

    There were two quakes in Japan while we were there - the first supposedly in Tokyo on the 16th - the second was felt by several in our hotel (New Plaza) either on the 19th or 20th. Nothing major, just a roller to remind everyone and make them nervous.
