The Torrent Becomes a Trickle

Sorry for my recent lack of posting. Things with the move really got crazy and then I had visa issues to worry about and to be honest it is all still a bit up in the air. Good news is we’ve moved into our new base, showers opened for business today and with more beds going up tomorrow the bulk of our volunteers should be down here in Sakari very shortly. I’ve also been working furiously to schedule applicants for our extended dates before July 10th, by which time everyone is expecting a reply and places are filling up fast. Tomorrow is more of the same plus shopping with Toby for bulk food supplies and laundry detergent now that we also have two washing machines online here. Now its off for goodbye drinks with Keiko and Mark, provided, along with sushi, by Umiami-san from the city council for the hard work of All Hands’ volunteers in the ditches and canals of Ofunato. So in the case of the local drainage system its actually a case of the trickle becoming a torrent. Great job guys!
