They also say earthquake killed hundreds. RIP
I experienced a 4 something earthquake when I was in Arequipa. I was then traveling as a backpacker and on a shoestring. I was staying in a dormitorio (collective room, in English?) with 6 beds. There was only that local girl and myself in the room that night. The walls started to shake and there were cracking sounds. We didn't leave the room.
