This afternoon we felt a powerful earthquake that was centered in the Mexican desert. Our building felt like it was rolling on waves for what seemed like a very long time. When the movement finally stopped, Jan and I went out to the balcony and saw people looking out from the other balconies and people in the middle of the street. By the time I thought to get a camera and came back, the number in the street had gotten smaller. Still, these people all came out of the restaurant downstairs. I wonder how many left without paying their bills.
