Individual responses are below.

@Matt: I cannot even imagine, particularly when you are surrounded by tall buildings.

@Liz: Christchurch, such a sad story. We appreciate your train analogy completely. It’s almost difficult to believe those few seconds it takes to figure out what’s going on.

That said, Am glad you are OK.

@Michael: Thanks for the Oaxaca tips. We’ll be doing our own rundown of food in Oaxaca, so we can compare notes.

@Sutapa: Glad you found it humorous. That again was the intent. So long as everyone was OK, about all you can do is laugh, particularly at yourself.

@John: Thanks, John. Your compliments mean a lot, particular since that’s what we were aiming for.

Have you had a chance to check out any of our posts from our Oaxaca trip from last December? I think there are three or four. We really love Oaxaca. saludos.

It really sounded and felt like a train was coming through the house and it took a few seconds to realize that it was no train but an earthquake. And yes, all the training went out the door. It’s an experience your never likely to forget.

Happy to hear that there was little damage to people or property.

As for why it takes a long time to figure out? Houses are not supposed to bounce up and down!! :) And to think, people here in Oaxaca live with these on a regular basis.

We had a few strong ones like that in Alaska. When the house is bouncing up and down while swaying from side to side, why does it take a while to figure out it is an Earthquake???!!!! haha
