China Earthquake

Roy is in China now and a reader asked if he happened to be in Yunnan during yesterday's earthquake. Fortunately, he's still in Beijing, although his itinerary may include a swing through Yunnan in a few weeks. The earthquake was centered about 125 miles west of Yunnan's capital, Kunming. Most of Yunnan's famous tea areas are considerably south of Kunming, however, the quake was closer to one of Roy's favorite R&R spots in Yunnan, Lijiang. You may remember his account of taking a break in Lijiang during his trip to China back in April. Lijiang itself was the site of a major earthquake in 1996.

Roy will be posting reports from his current China trip shortly, with more details.
