Australia is super strict at the borders but the courts let them down time and time again. Take for example, a 7yr old boy caught driving his father, who blew 4 times the legal limit, home at 3am in the morning....a slap on the wrist. no jail time. go figure

One great things about Churaumi is the behind the scenes tour of the main tank that's available for free! Visitors get to walk around the top of the tank, and above the tank on the suspended walkway to see how everything is done behind the scenes. A real highlight.

Morioka is starting to cop the wind and rain pretty good now. I can't open the apartment door due to the wind, and im getting hungry!

I wasn't trying to engage you in some argument, simply stating a fact. Despite what you may think, i also hope for swift justice..

Whilst Cappadocia is a populated tourist spot, it's not hard to get off the beaten track, especially hiking in amongst the valleys.

Personal experience. I've travelled extensively throughout Turkey and Europe and have seen it happen, or nearly happen multiple times. Yes it can happen to all of us, but in the large majority of cases i've seen it happen its been with Japanese tourists. The pigs comment may have been a bit harsh, but i've also seen that multiple times first hand, like when the waiter of the restaurant asked my girl out on a date, right in front of me, as we were having dinner together. I told him we were together, he blatantly ignored me, and then continued to proposition her as we were leaving. Or when i caught a guy taking pics up two young Japanese girls skirts in the bazaar, they had an idea what he was doing, but he just kept laughing it off and being friendly, they laughed with him, and he continued to do it. I said something to him, and was immediately confronted by him and his mates and recommended i leave before something happened...

Sherman, I understand what you're trying to say.
Japanese tourists, especially young girls, are the most naive of all. Of course, this wasn't the girls fault, we all know that, but their naivety whilst travelling is often what sends them in the direction of danger. I know first hand some of the men in Turkey can be absolute pigs, and there's no shortage of scammers looking to prey on naive tourists.

Of course there are many questions regarding where all the money went but theres also another thing we need to appreciate. The scale of this devastation is incomprehensible. Its not secret at how hard the Japanese work, but having seen this areas first hand myself, i'm still not surprised its taking so long. Towns have literally been wiped off the map…its not something that can be replaces in just 2 years.
