#1Thing i have learned in California: earthquakes are weird.
Somewhere between the Universal studios tour (during which we experienced a simulated earthquake) and the Mummy ride (which flung us hither and thither in the dark), L. A. experienced the secondary effects of a 7.2 magnitude earthquake.
And um, we didn't even notice. Not. A. Blip.
Locals were likewise blasé but at least they knew. Not until we watched the news later that night did we realize what happened. Trinket-laden, map-reading, meandering (and apparently shaking) tourists can truly define clueless. I guess we proved that theory. Check.
