White Sun of the Desert writes [1] in the aftermath of a recent and not-so-distant earthquake: “That you live in an earthquake zone and are a potential target for a building collapse or a tsunami are easy things to forget for a Brit, but in any case there is precious little any of us can do about it. All I can do is hope that the ground will be nice and steady during my stay on the island.”
