The one below is a neighborhood just outside of a processing plant that we visited.
I will continue my blogs about my trip, but I didn't want to show any disrespect to those who have been affected by this disaster. I have been in touch with my friends in Japan and I am waiting to hear back about their well being. My prayers and thoughts go out to the people of Japan during this horrible crisis. My personal financial support is going to Samaritan's Purse Relief Efforts. They are already on the ground in Japan with supply blankets, hygiene supplies, and water purification systems to those in need. There are also other organizations that are helping as well.
I thought it might be honoring to those in Japan on St. Patrick's Day, to make "your green drink of the day" an Iced Matcha Latte. While making it and drinking it, we can stop and pray for those in need and if you can support the relief effort financially, that would be wonderful as well!
