Liuzhou Laowai

Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

Whole Lotta Shakin’

Typical. I leave Guangxi for a few days and the place starts falling apart. I spent last weekend back in my old haunts in Hunan, where I lived 20 years ago. Almost as soon as I crossed the border, Guangxi has an earthquake!


The magnitude-5.4 quake, centred on Wuzhou city to the east of Liuzhou, is estimated to have displaced 1200 people and damaged 200 homes, but there have been no recorded injuries.

The tremors were felt by some people in Liuzhou and even as far away as Hong Kong. Minor earthquakes aren’t that uncommon here, but it has been over 400 years since anything major.

Anyway, I had a great time in Hunan: great company, great food. And I didn’t suffer the shakes.
