Well, we got a short email from our ds. The crew, ship and food are fine. Phew. They don't have their ship email account yet, but he found WIFI to send an email. Don't know if the WIFI is on ship or in port (which I hear there is), but it was good to have a short communication with him. They are in port till the 30th, then hit more Japanese ports in 7 days, and head to the west coast. Amazing, this was the longest email we've gotten from him since he went to KP in July 09.
