And the earth moved… earthquake in Madrid!

Wow, I think I have just experienced my first earthquake, in Madrid! Sitting on the sofa next to Marina, 9.45 ish, wishing I hadn’t had that last gin and tonic in some wonderful fiestas we stumbled across last night in Madrid’s La Latina barrio, and suddenly everything started shaking! The sofa was rumbling, the standard lamp was wobbling back and forth, Marina said, “Ben, stop doing that,” and I said “it’s not me! It’s a bloody earthqauke!!!” Wow.

Update: it was a 4.7 quake with the epicentre in Ciudad Real. News in Spanish
