      After leaving overseas, I have had so many people try to get in touch with me after watching the news and hearing about a particular earth quake or Tsunami. It never appears such a big deal the way that the media informs people in the US.

        yea he said he didnt know anything about and nothing was showing on their tv. I guess the government there only shows what they want to show. We had to send him links to the news stories for him to see how serious it was

          I think its the American Way to blow things out of proportion. We also like to amplify the negatives which cause us to get easily worried or paranoid. The world isnt have as bad as most of us Americans see it! BTW Is your FI having a great time in China? My mom called me about the earthquake today and like your FI, I had no clue. I tend to sleep through them too- I noticed we have been having a ton lately!
          China is sooooooo strict on their media and internet laws. Its ridiculous. Everything is blocked.

                    OMG Jenny I am glad he is okay! I had the same thing happen to me. My FI went to Peru w/his brother to climb Machupichu (sp?). Well of course it was when the earthquake occured that killed all these people. So I was freaking out hysterical crying and I couldn't get in touch with him b/c they were roughing it. It turns out he didn't even feel it since he was on top of a mountain!

                    The ironic thing was that before he left I kept begging him not to go and I even said "Why can't you just be like a normal guy and go to Cancun to get wasted and see wet t-shirt contests?" Umm yeah then Cancun got hit by a hurricane that same week he was gone!

                    I am glad that Greg is okay! I'm sure he'll be home safe and sound soon and then you will feel at peace and relieved. Give him big hugs when he comes home!
