thank you for your thoughts, it's nice to see there are people who care.
Nobody in my family lives near the area affected by the Earthquake. And no friends either, as far as I know.
I have been on a roadtrip for the past 3 days (sorry Pat, didn't get your voicemail) and just arrived in Los Angeles. Tomorrow morning I'm catching a flight to Italy.
I'll be in touch once I get there with some new photos. Thanks again!
