Japan’s nuclear crisis and my life

April 13, 2011

As a Reuters photographer, I have covered many disasters and incidents over the last ten years but these things had little direct affect on my life.

I was also informed that only three other people had checked in for the business class cabin; and that the crew could well outnumber the passengers there.
