Kites and tape
Its that the cutest postcard? I originally bought it in London for my brother and had addressed it in September last year but eventually ended up handing it to him at Christmas! Oophs!
The same shopping trip in London also netted me some Japanese washi tape. While I can't even begin to comprehend what its like to live through an event such as the massive 9.0 earthquake in Japan, I am sending thoughts in that direction. I hope the country gets back on its feet soon and that the nucleur fallout doesn't make things much worse.
