Earthquake

  • I learned about the Japanese earthquake when I did an English Corner last night.  The students told me, which was nice because they usually tell you nothing.  I found it strange that I didn't come across the news when I was surfing the Internet, which shows I don't surf news sites much.  Already, images of water engulfing Japanese areas could be seen on the bus's video players as I was riding home last night
  • Someone told me that people on high floors of Wuxi Buildings could have felt the Japanese quake.  Jenny and Tony were on the 21st floor when the Sichuan Earthquake happened and they really felt it.  The quake being an 8.8, it was a real shaker.
  • Friday's English Corner was about Materialism.  Today's will be about Soldiers.
  • A young female student comes around the trainers office giving us grapes.  Nice of her!
  • By the time you read this, or by the time I publish this, Tony will have come downtown.
  • Lots happening in the Wuxi China Expatdom. Protests over Viagra subsidies, and Chocolate subsidies as well.
  • A photo of the latest toy I have bought for Tony.

Were Jenny and Tony on the 21st floor of a building in Wuxi when that 'quake happened? Must have been terrifying.

Australian media reports this morning that 54 Australians are unaccounted for in that Japanese prefecture, many of them English teachers.
