Well, this post doesn't have anything to do with art. This is all about the earthquake that surely, each of you have heard about. My wife, Rojito, and myself are fine. We are still without electricity and internet. I'm writing this post from the house of our friends. The area where we live was hit hard, but not the hardest. Here in Placilla, the quake was about a 7.5 or so. Even though that's nothing to snicker at, the majority of the houses are fine and no one here in our población/town have been seriously injured or died. However, many of the houses are more than a 100 yrs old had did collapse in part, or completely. So as of this point, we are fine and waiting for the supermarkets and gas stations to open, and who knows when that will be. For now though, here are some photos of Placilla. Also, as time goes on, I'll be adding more photos. As the amount of time i have is limited to upload and post, please use my flickr link to see the photos.
