There was an earthquake yesterday in Sichuan and thankfully none of our family nor friends were affected.
However many others have been!
Some of the stories have been funny though. My friend's husband was in a province close by and he had been entertaining chinese clients the night before (this involves a lot of drinking and toasting) and he didn't dare say anything when the floor started moving because he thought he was still drunk!
But on a more sombre note, there are relief efforts and appeals for donations which we will probably respond to.
Thank you for all your kind thoughts and wishes - we are fine!
