This was a first big moment for us here in Costa Rica, our first earthquake that we actually felt. I was in Spanish class when the building began swaying back and forth and the earth was moving all around. Most of the earthquakes that occur on the pacific side we don’t even feel, but this one was BIG and I sure hope the people over in Nicoya are ok. The experts have been saying to expect a large quake on the Nicoya because it is a locked plate, was this it or is there another one yet to come??
