Popoki's E-mail was hacked!

Yesterday, somebody hacked Popoki's e-mail and sent messages saying that Ronni was stuck in Manchester with no money and asking for help. Ronni is fine and in Kobe, but Popoki has a new address...and has lost his contacts. We have changed from popokipeace to ronniandpopoki. Thanks!

We are doing what we can to help. One activity is Popoki's Friendship Story Project to join us all with one long cloth.
