I have to admit I was getting really worried about my host family, especially after one of the neighbouring towns was reported badly hit. I’d decided that they must have evacuated and be unable to check mail (neither of my host parents had a smart phone) but this morning I found a message from host dad! To loosely paraphrase him, ‘we are fine, the house is fine, the fields are fine, the goats are fine and the chickens are fine.’ Best news ever!
Okay! Back to enjoying Perihelion!
