Safe and sound in Dongguan, China
My sympathy to everyone who has been affected by the earthquake and tsunami, and my thanks to all those who have sent concern for my well-being.
I'm on vacation largely off the Internet, but was safely on the other side of the Malay Peninsula, in the Philippines. I was actually kayaking over the reef in less than half a meter of water at the precise time of the earthquake, and staying in a beachfront bungalow less than a meter above high tide level, but the the tsunami was imperceptible on this side of the Malay Peninsula (except perhaps with sophisticated instruments) even on the coast or in shallow water.
I'll have more on the lessons for travellers of the earthquake and tsunami, and updates on The Amazing Race, when I return home next week.Link | Posted by Edward on Thursday, 6 January 2005, 07:04 ( 7:04 AM)
