A Ofelia de Pablo and Javier Zurita, Spanish photojournalists, the earthquake of 8.9 degrees on the coast of Japan, was struck on the 34th floor of his hotel in Tokyo. Both worked in the capital in an interview for the magazine Seven Leagues. "I thought we did not," said De Paul, who after the shock was meeting with other guests at the reception with no time to put on socks.

"We are safe because the building is new, but has moved around," said the journalist ELMUNDO. is through a chat. Several hours after shaking the phone lines are saturated in much of the country. Recorded on video with his partner, Zurita, show the first moments after the first of several shocks.

"There has been a big one, and then a replica just fat," says Paul. Outside, through the sale, both are witnesses of how the flames wrap some buildings in downtown Tokyo.
