Midnight Developments: More Quakes To Come?


            Near the close of our first day of mourning, panic has set in as TV news reports tell us of a threat of several tremors, perhaps larger than the first.  We are urged to do what we feel is safe.  Since my neighbors are concerned, and I am as well, I have packed up overnight belongings and will be camping out with others on the Sichuan University campus.  Little Ghost will be coming along in her small carrier as will Little Flower on her leash.

            Hopefully, these reports will not materialize into truth.  Those to the north of us have suffered enough. 

            I hope to have good news in the morning of fears allayed and all well.



            Until next time, “Ping An!” (Peace)


            P.S.  One does wonder, is there any end in sight?!

About connieinchina

I have been in the Asia region for 30 years as an English language teacher. 28 of those have been spent with the Amity Foundation, a Chinese NGO that works in all areas of development for the Chinese people. Amity teachers are placed at small colleges throughout China as instructors of English language majors in the education field. In other words, my students will one day be English teachers themselves in their small villages or towns once they graduate. Currently, this is my 13th year in Luzhou Vocational and Technical College. The college is located in Luzhou city (loo-joe), Sichuan Province, a metropolis of 5 million people located next to the Yangtze River .
