On Wednesday, the water had been tainted with radioactivity in Tokyo, and there was a mad rush on bottled water.
You couldn't even find bottled water in Osaka, in our neck of the woods anyway.
A day later, the radioactive levels in the water have gone down...it is now okay to drink the tap water in Tokyo...really??
The government is also saying that the levels of radiation for some seasonal vegetables are safe to eat but the farmers will not be allowed to harvest or sell them, WT?
If the levels are safe enough to eat, I think we should eat the veggies and not waste the hard work of these farmers.
On top of that yogurt is scarce too, I've heard they were being sent to the disaster areas.
Overall, in Osaka, we still do have plenty to eat. Am thankful for this.
It had been awhile since I went for a walk so the other day, I went to check out the ume (apricot) at Suigetsu Park.
They are in full bloom now, but the wind is still icy even with the sun out.
It is Friday and we're starting our weekend early, hope you have a good weekend.
