We just arrived in Chengdu on Thursday at 8:10 pm. We were pretty tired and all were in bed by about 10 pm. At 12:40 pm I was jolted from my bed by what I think was an aftershock. I had convinced myself I was imagining things with jet lag and all. I checked http://www.usgs.gov and sure enough there were two tremors registering at 4.6 and 5.0 which were back to back. What a welcome back to Chengdu! Luckily we are leaving again next Thursday for a while. I guess I should let Northern Ireland know that I am nothing but bad luck.
Some good news though, I checked my blog and I can now read it without having to go through a proxy server! Yeah!!! I hope this motivates me to post more!
