>Ok, sorry it's taken me this long to get mail out to everyone. Things have
>been goofy here the last couple of days and I haven't had much time to
>myself. Let me just say that both Sean and I are fine and still alive.
>Yes, we were in Istanbul during the earthquake. Yes, Sean slept through
>it. Yes, I DID go back into the building after they evacuated it to wake
>his sorry butt up and get him outside. It was an interesting couple of days.
>Death toll is at 15000, last I heard, and some are predicting it will go as
>high as 40000 or so. Istanbul was relatively untouched,especially compared
>to Izmit, which is where the epicenter was, around 100 km from Istanbul.
>They continued with the orientation program as planned, however, because we
>weren't in any immediate danger. So, for right now, I'm fine and there's
>nothing to worry about. Smile, be happy, I'm fine, we're all fine. It's
>hot and humid, but that I can live with.
>I'll write all of you more later on, but I'm back at school now, so you can
>write me here. Enjoy, relax, and have a Pepsi on me. Peace.
