earthquakes follow me

for all the concerned friends.

ana and family are ok.

we actually left lima this morning and took a flight to cusco. i was sitting under an ancient archway in the middle of the historic plaza de armas staring at a group of stray dogs when i thought my altitude sickness had fully kicked in. i was swaying back and forth and side to side... i figured i was just exceptionally dizzy due to the extreme altitude. only a few minutes later, when i reunited with my family, did i realize there was a huge quake up north in pisac. what i felt in that plaza was nothing compared to what our brothers and sisters to the north dealt with.

we head to lima next week. i hope the damage is not too bad and that my family there is ok.

take care friends,
