Did the earth move for you?

Well it has for us! Tremors have been felt in the Santiago region both yesterday and today. Yesterday some colleagues from the UK had just arrived and we were up in the restaurant on the 14th floor of our hotel when the tremour was felt at around 11am - quite a welcome to Santiago for my jet-lagged colleagues! The whole room really wobbled for what felt like around 20 seconds. The hotel staff behaved very calmly as if nothing was happening - which was quite reassuring. Apparently there was another tremour today of around 5.9 - but Kerry and I were on the coast at Isla Negra and felt nothing.
