A terrible start for the Chinese New Year, a year of the tiger, which is said to be an inauspicious year of natural disasters. First Haiti (right before the lunar new year), and now Chile. (Makes our blizzards pale in comparison, right?)
People are already lining up for food, as in the Reuters photo of a line outside a bakery here. If you’d like to donate, check out this Google site or the Huffington Post site, and pick a way that suits you. For the price of a few dinners here, you can provide for many more badly needed meals or other supplies in Chile. And the vinyards and winerys, those wonderful wines, I wonder how they fared?
