Sichuan Earthquake

I’ve already started getting some inquiries about this, so to allay any concerns: yes, I’m fine. Allison and I didn’t even know there was an earthquake in Sichuan until we actually read it in the news just before Allison headed home this afternoon. Neither of us felt anything here in Beijing. I believe that one story claimed that the earthquake epicenter is about 950 miles away from here, so however severe it may have been, I’m guessing that most people in Beijing wouldn’t have known the difference without it being reported in the media. Though the death toll is beginning to sound gruesome (albeit not quite the level of the Burma cyclone), I have to admit that, perversely enough, I’m a bit disappointed that we didn’t feel anything here.
