Earthquake in L’Aquila, Italy


Hi all!

Thanks for the emails from people – but as you can see we’re fine and not in L’Aquila at the moment.  We were there 10 days ago and stayed there for 3 days right in the centre, in a town we liked, had fun in, and found really friendly. 

Early this morning they had a major quake – see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_L%27Aquila_earthquake .  

Current information suggests 90 dead, 1,500 injured and damage to between 3,000-10,000 buildings.

We’re obviously not involved, but gutted for the town that was so kind to us. 

We directed people we met to visit the town only a week ago so don’t know if they made it or were there – fingers crossed.

Best wishes to the town L

R&M
