The earthquake: I was running back to my apartment from the classroom for something, and didn’t feel a thing. The other foreign teacher here staggered out of her apartment and said she thought she was dying. I told her to put her head between her legs and I’d get a doctor. While I was racing back to the administration building all these people started pouring out of buildings. We had to sit in the sports ground in the sun for a couple of hours. Miss Universe turned up after a few minutes looking sheepish.
