Wow, That Was... A Letdown

So, Costa Rica is a seismically active place. After all, there are active volcanoes here. I've been here a little over five months and hadn't yet experienced an earthquake.

Until sometime in the middle of the night on Fri/Sat. Jen told me when we got up yesterday morning that there was a small one.

And I slept through it. How unfair.

Well!! Last night, as we watched Alladin with Julia, I felt a tremor of the couch... and then realized -- just as Jen said it -- that my foot, which was on the tiled floor (on top of a concrete pad), felt the same tremor.

I have now experienced my first Central American earthquake.

Pretty cool. Volcanoes and earthquakes fascinate me. Growing up in SF bay area we had earthquakes all the time. I plan on visiting Mt St Helens sometime this summer. They are predicting it may blow again in our lifetime.

Thanks for visiting and commenting at the new blog. Have a fun Tuesday.
