The expatriate community is Beijing is about 100,000 people strong.
That may seem like a lot but when tragedy strikes, it is very small.
I didn’t know Fabricio but I know a lot of people that did.
He seems like he was a wonderful person and this was an utter shock.
Then again, when someone is 28, how can it not be a shock.
Friends of mine are holding a benefit for him today.
It is going to cost 80,000RMB (about 15,000 USD) to send his body back to his family.
It is sad enough that someone so young has died.
It is a tragedy that his family may not be able to have his body returned home.

As I wrote above, I didn’t know Fabricio but I am donating because I think this is a horrible event for the family and it is the least I can do.
