First of all, this is much safer than it sounds. I felt my first earthquake today! It wasn´t really an earthquake (terrimoto) so much as a tremor (temblor). It wasn´t even enough to rattle the cupboards, but we were definitely able to feel it. I was sitting on a bench at the time, and it felt like someone was shaking the bench back and forth rather slowly. Actually, I think we all felt a little dizzy and really excited about it. There is one person in our group of four from California, but I am fairly sure that this was something new for the rest of us. We´re easily amused and very well informed about earthquake safety.
