Over the past few months, I have been preparing for a trip to Japan. On Wednesday, May 6, I was scheduled to leave for the airport and go straight to Yokohama, Japan.
Curse the swine flu. Just today I received an email from my sponsor, notifying everyone that the trip was POSTPONED.
Why? The reason is simple. A student from Yokohama recently came to Vancouver. When that student got back to Japan, he was suspected of diagnosed with having the dreaded swine flu. Meaning? I don’t have to think about packing this week.
