Shaken, not stirred

We had a bit of a bump today in Tehran, late this afternoon the city was shaken by a small quake - it is right next to a major tectonic faultline - which apparently clocked up 4.5 on the Richter scale. It was a sort of double shock where we were, almost what you'd expect from a blasting charge set off in the ground a little way off.

It didn't seem to disrupt much, though we did learn that Tehran gets about 400 of these in any one year. All I can say is that I hope we don't get anything bigger during the next five to six months. After that they can shake, rattle and roll all they like!
