Thanks to Triplicate reporter Tony Reed for the excellent coverage of the Crescent City delegation’s trip to Rikuzentakata. Not only do his articles detail in a highly readable manner the official business and cultural events of the tour, they also convey the generous spirit and warmth with which the delegates were welcomed.

During the Sister City celebration, which took place at the Cultural Center in April, special advisor to the City of Rikuzentakata Amya Miller said she felt like she had just given birth. Let us all cherish what has been born and nurture it well.
