The day the earth moved

I had my first real earthquake today. I have felt a few tremors up to now, but this was the real deal. It was at lunch time and I was in the cafeteria - underground - and even then it felt like I was on a boat. Side to side but also up and down movement... somewhat akin to a boat docking with a port I suppose. Very strange and serene, more than scary.

In Taipei, it was 4.0 on the Richter scale, and 7 at its epicentre.
