So I'm having sushi in Tokyo on my layover because you can't come to Japan and not have sushi, right?! The guy to my left at the bar just happens to have come out of Bangkok so we start chatting. Conversation turns to Myanmar and he tells me that news outlets are reporting that a Japanese photojournalist has been shot and killed covering the protests in Myanmar. Freak me right out! They also have unconfirmed reports that a German journalist was also shot and killed. Things are getting really crazy over there to say the least. My biggest concern is that the Jaunta is going to close the borders and I'm gonna get fucking stuck over there. I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I picked this place months ago as I thought it wasn't going to be such a horrific situation I was putting myself into- I'm rethinking that thought. Here's some links is anyone is interested:
I feel so close and so far away at the same time!
