So, Christian called me this morning to tell me that there had been a major earthquake, with lots of casualties, and I nearly panicked--was he calling to tell me he was stuck? He had to stay and help? His hotel collapsed? No, he's fine. The quake was felt by some people in Shanghei, but he didn't notice it. I would imagine it would be very strange to be in a foreign country, so close to such a major disaster, but thankfully, he's fine (and will be home Friday night!).
