A scent of corn with husk reminds me of my childhood.
My uncle used to produce corns in his farm and I helped my mother to sell them to neighbors during summer holiday.
I am glad to hear that my two nieces in Fukushima stayed with my parents in Sendai for a week during their summer holiday. They enjoyed playing around without any worry about radiation from Fukushima power plant.
There has been still thousands of earthquake from small ones to big ones since 11th of March, 2011. When the M4 earthquake hit Tohoku area three days ago, I emailed to my niece. She replied quickly, saying "I am just fine! I am not scared at all. I got used to the earthquake :)! I won't be scared even if the bigger one hit again! ...But... I am terrified with radiation."
