And there is a note to me in it. Thank you for posting this and thanks for your concerns. I missed this by not even a full week. Crazy. I was just at some of those places a few days ago..... I did make it back to Shanghai safely and soundly and I was all in love with the Philippines thinking I would move there next.... Idk, maybe I'll stay a bit more inland though.

Glad to hear you're okay. :)
