Sunday in Fukushima by Sean Bonner

Interesting read: Sean Bonner's fresh account of his trip to Fukushima, Japan on the Safecast blog. He was there recording radiation levels along with Xeni Jardin, Miles O'Brien (who are both in Japan for PBS Newshour), Pieter Franken and others: LINK

Also, Xeni has a new interview on boingboing with Yoko Ono who was recently honored with the 8th Hiroshima Art Prize. LINK
Road of Hope is Yoko's exhibit.
I have been following Xeni's updates on twitter. She is also travelling to Kyoto, Kobe and Hiroshima for PBS Newshour with Miles O'Brien.
