I spent 30+ hours in Tokyo Disney Sea because of the March 11, 2011 earthquake. We had limited information coming in and out. I don't speak Japanese so I have no idea what was going on. I had to sleep on the floor and the food they gave us to eat were chocolates, corn soup, bread, and rice. And we didn't get it all at one time. I had this aluminum blanket to sleep with but I was still cold. The ground shook like every 2 hours or so and that shit was crazy. I've never seen a lamp post shake like that; i swear that wasn't normal. Oh and where I was sleeping I could see huge speakers above my head and I kept thinking they were going to drop on me.
When we finally got outside the park to look for food the whole area outside was a mess. Liquefaction had turned most of the sidewalk into sand and it whipped at our faces every time the wind blew hard. We found a convenience store that only had alcohol and ice cream left.
We got picked up on the 35th hour or so by a friend. The car ride back to where I was staying took about four hours. And then I found out that a nuclear reactor had blown up.
Tried to get an early flight out: additional 2,000 dollars to buy a new ticket. Managed to get home early 'cause a friend called the airlines for me.
Oh, and as a precursor bad luck omen, on the flight coming to Japan--about two days before the earthquake, I fainted on the airplane and had to lie down for two hours next to the emergency exit door. Free alcohol on international flights, but I faint if I drink on the airplane. NOOOO...It's free T.T
Worst Vacay EVER!
