Our first earthquake

Yesterday night we experienced our first earthquake. We – us and two friends staying at our place – were already about to fall asleep, when the ground started moving, the bed jumping, and the walls shaking. We all ran fastly to the entrance door case, hoping it will save our four lives. Imagine, four guys standing in one door case… 😉 At the end, it was not too bad. It lasted only a minute or two. But it was an experience, reminding us to have our papers close in case it might repeat, and we have to escape speedily like a stoat.
