Apple Crumble with Vanilla Sauce

As the tragedy in Japan unfolds, it is very sobering to realize what nature can do and the damage it can cause. The earthquake and the tsunami were horrific and coupled with that a nuclear melt down only made the matters worse.
While it is common in Japan to have earthquakes and Tsunamis, the power of the recent 9.0 magnitude earthquake that bent the tip of the Tokyo Tower can fundamentally change the face of the nation. Day after Day on the TV, the devastating pictures and the harrowing stories undeniably makes you dazed.

That said, I think a country with resilient people which recovered from WW II and the Hiroshima Nagasaki destruction will definitely make its way through this one...
