Day 40: To Dali

Day 40: August 31st

We woke up early to pack and get ready for our bus to Dali. While we were packing, the entire room started to shake. We knew we were in an earthquake zone but this was totally unexpected. The earthquake woke almost anyone else that might have still been asleep.

Bill wrote about it here later that day when we arrived in Dali.

There was no visible damage that we could see but we heard later on the news that there were some casualties. The only signs that we saw were some fire trucks and ambulances racing into the down as we were leaving town….no doubt to attend to the injured.

We arrived safely in Dali later that afternoon…much to the relief of our families who had also seen it on the news.
Our thoughts and prayers with the victims and those who lost their homes that day.
