Heart of Stone

Members of the Desarmes family left Haiti two weeks after the devastating earthquake in January, joining their eldest son in Chile in what seemed a refuge from the chaos of Port-au-Prince.

Their sense of security lasted barely a month, until another powerful quake shook Chile at the weekend.

All the immediate family survived both quakes, but now, for fear of another quake, they sleep in the garden of a home that the eldest son, Pierre, found for them near the capital, Santiago.

I am trying not to laugh at this, but failing.
