So it's the Monday before the trip. 5 days to go, and an earthquake has just hit Bhutan. Apparently the epicentre was 110 miles east of Thimphu where i will be going next week.
It measured 6.3 on the Richter scale, and apparently has caused damage to temples and blocked roads, but there are no reports of large-scale damage, so at the moment i'm still heading to Bhutan next week.
Strangely enough, there was an earthquake the day before i arrived in L.A. this year too. I'm beginning to feel like a harbinger of doom.
