Liz, the kids and I missed being there for the shaking by a week. We're all safe at home.

In Lima, the damage doesn't seem to be significant, except for places with older homes like Rimac and Barrios Altos, though I expect that when the news crews go out into the poor neighborhoods ringing the city they'll find a lot of damage there, too.

Among our relatives and friends, thankfully the only casualty seems to be aunt Betty's bruised hip, which she banged fleeing down the stairs of her apartment. Sara talked to Rosa and David in Ica and they are OK.
