Safe and sound

Hi everyone, just a quick note to reassure everyone that we are safe and sound. In the last 24 hours Indonesia was hit with a 7.7 magnitude earthquake (and numerous aftershocks), a 10-foot high tsunami and a volcanic eruption. We are nowhere close to where it happened, so much that we only found out about it today when we were taking money out of the ATM and it had a special message about donating money to help the victims. Java and a small island off Sumatra were the victims, and over 300 people have died thus far. Here in Bali, it’s business as usual.

Tomorrow we are leaving Bali for the Gili islands – even further from the action.
