Well the tsunami that everone was concerning about last night turned out to be not at all bad after all- phew. In fact, the 2m waves predicted turned out to be 40cm waves, equivalent to someone splashing around a bit too over-enthusiastically in the bath.

In other important developments the Japanese volleyball team, led by the talented and lovely Saori Kimura, lost in straight sets to the Chinese team tonight. According to the “federation internationale de volleyball”, this means Japan finish in 6th, an improvement on their performance in the last World Cup four years ago. Sadly this was the last game of the tournament, so I’ll have to wait a while before I get to see the lovely Saori again.
