Here I am in the beautiful city of Colombo, and another disaster almost occurs..
A reported near to 9.0 richter scale quake..http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqinthenews/2005/usweax/
I am ok, I am alive, I didn’t feel a thing..
I did however get flooded with SMS, thanks everyone..I appreciate the concern, sincerely.
I don’t believe the quake caused any Tsunamic activity.
You can ready plenty about it HERE
Sri Lanka has withdrawn the Tsunami alert which was put out last night
Thailand and Japan also issued warnings, which I believe have all been withdrawn.
Colombo is nice, it’s sunny, there is sea and beaches, there is good food and cheap beer, the food is a little on the spicy side though, even though I’m pretty hardcore in the chilli eating department..
But 8rm for a pint of Carslberg at a posh seafront bar is good for me…(15rm in a KL club for a smaller class with no view, and no sea)..
Traffic is pretty crazy, people everywhere, people sounding horns every 2.6 seconds, what seems like millions of short old dudes wearing short sleeved shirts and sarongs..
Will post when I have time, mega busy with the project right now (It’s real work, not teaching for once, yay! H4x0r the planet yo!)
Can’t jack anyones wireless from the hotel, so I’m netless, will stick to drinking beer and eating crabs in the evening then 🙂 What a hard life..
Just wanted to let you all know I’m ok.
