I wanted to send out my best wishes and thoughts to all of you in the US. We found out about the tragedy early yesterday morning, and I spent most of the day crying and in shock. I can't believe this has happened.
I trust and hope that your friends and family are safe.
I am OK. We are in Kobe, Japan, right now. For now, they intend to continue the itinerary, but I think travelling through the Middle East is doubtful. I will let you know when things become more certain.
