There was an earthquake today. I wish I could say I handled it like a champ, but it completely terrified me. It took me a couple seconds to realize what was going on because I had never experienced an earthquake before! At first I thought a loud and heavy truck was banging down the road, but I looked up and noticed that the walls were shaking! I completely froze.
I knew I should get underneath a desk or run towards an exit, but my body didn’t want to move! The earthquake probably lasted about 10 seconds or so before everything was back to normal.
Here’s to experiencing another first in Japan! I’m hoping an earthquake that size won’t happen again while I’m here!
