'We heard the thundering sound and felt the earth tremble beneath us... at first we all thought it was an earthquake. Gods... I whish it was an earthquake.' - the man trembled and big beads of sweat could be seen on his forehead - 'I ve seen terrible earthquakes, you know. They're not so uncommon in these parts. But this... nature can not do this kind of thig.' - He knelt and picked up a fustfull of white sand from the floor and then let it slip through his fingers - 'This used to be our city hall. We built it from the finest Saranian marble...'
