Here is a photo of our apartment. I learned at work yesterday that stairwells are NOT the place to be in an earthquake as it supports most of the building's stress (that and falling down the stairwell in the temblor). So stop, drop and roll under something to protect yourselves from falling objects, and wait it out. Other than personal safety, somewhat ironically related, I bought a car today. Not sure how, and I not 100% convinced it is 100% legal but I am now the proud owner of a Nissan Platina (?). We are off to the beach tomorrow!.
