Earthquake hits Indonesia!

"OH MY GOD, everybody out of the hotel" was the cry from Andrew Frawley. A powerful 7.5 earthquake hit Jarkarta and it was the first time i had ever experianced such a powerful blow from mother nature.

The hotel swung left and right, the walls in the hotel starting to crack and the lighting hanging from the hotel lobby was swaying uncontrolably.

The quake was so powerful that it actually knocked Tim Mack out from his bed while he was sleeping (on the 17th floor). I was both nervous and worried that the building i was staying in was to fall any moment, but reasuring words from Andrew calmed me down.

I was feeling a little tired but after the quake is was impossible to get to sleep.
