Jonathan and Christine are on holiday in Kathmandu India as I write this . They won't be back to their home in England until April 14. If anyone has any information about the area around and including their place please let me know so I can relay this to them. I don't know if they are even aware of the earthquake.
I pray that all of your friends and family are ok.
This is the first time i've submitted a post to the website. We've only been back in UK a week after 2 weeks in Ofena. No idea how our house is and we can't get through to anyone that we know - phones seem to be out of order. Poor Gianni, at least he's OK and there doesn't seem to be any casualties in the area from what everyone has posted. At least we do have earthquake cover so if the worst has happened we should be able to get it sorted. Hope everyone on the site has good news about their homes. Take care everyone and if you do hear anything about Via Garibaldi - please let me know.
