The beginning of María´s tale, the survivor of Valdivia´s earthquake.
November 29, 2017 8:22am CST
A dear friend of mine here ( @Shaggin ) took the trouble to fetch the beginning of the story of María, a survivor of the earthquake of Valdivia. I wrote that post a long time ago, but it was not interesting then so I did not finish it. I was planning to tell it in several chapters, so to say. @Shaggin Placed the link in one of the posts I wrote yesterday (what do we want to read) and as I´m dumb as to place the link by myself, I can tell you at least where it is. By the way, this post, and how it is coming to life after over a year, is one of the wonderful things that happen at mylot. The post is called María´s story. A real tale. It is a real tale and, with a lot of effort on her side, with a beautiful ending. I´m copying here what I answered one of my friends who wanted to know more. She was in the house of her father and was a young girl at the time of the big Valdivia earthquake. They lived between the sea and the mouth of a river because her father had fishing boats. They barely reached the higher lands running before the big tsunami came. You can read about Valdivia´s earthquake at Google. It is the biggest ever recorded.

I've been trying to ready for my guest, and she arrives today. I haven't been around much. But I did post a few things this morning. I need to read this story about this person and the earthquake. I've been through a couple of earthquakes myself......, that sounded horrendous.

I try to keep up with everyones posts here at mylot that I follow but somehow I missed that story. I am glad I found it and was able to read it now. It sure left me wanting to hear lots more about Maria. Here's the link to it in case others want to see the story as it was written over a year ago :
