...is anyone left in Tokyo?
Last Sunday, Mrs. Sunshine got a mail from her friend who had been "forced" by her French husband to leave everything behind and run away to france (read here) asking her "have you guys also gone to Osaka now, is there any people left in Tokyo?". Just as things were really starting to go back to almost normal life here in the Tokyo area. Mrs. Sunshine quickly replied back "Yes, we're all here and it's calmed down a lot now on the quakes, supply of stuff and the Fukushima is scary, but it doesn't seem like it will affect Tokyo in any case, we're not going anywhere".
A few minutes later a reply came again "Really? Crap, I'll call my boss, maybe I can make it back to Japan and come into the office on Tuesday if they haven't fired me!". Maybe she explained that her husband is French and that was the reason they ran away in the night or they just really liked her, because they apparently had not yet fired her in the absence and welcomed her back and even gave her an extra day off since she had problems finding a flight on so short notice.
I guess there's a lesson in here; even if a French guy tricks you into running away with him, you can still run away back to where you came from!
