Greetings. Just a quick note to let you know that we are fine. This morning we had a 7.6 earthquake, centered in Guanacaste on the north Pacific coast. It was the second largest ever in Costa Rica and certainly the strongest one I've experienced. For those who have never felt the earth shaking under your feet, I assure you that it's an eirie feeling. The University (UBL) has experienced no damage, although the library staff will be busy for many days picking up and restocking books that fell off shelves. Damage throughout the country has thankfully been minimal and the tsunami warning withdrawn.

Thank you to all those who have written with concern and prayers.
