That´s right. Can you see how close I am to lava! If not look a bit harder. If you assume that it´s hot there your right. But the amazing thing is, one step close is a difference of maybe 100 degees. It hurts. I jabbed at it with a stick tring to get some out to lite a smoke on, but holding a 4ft stick at full arms lenth is painful. We aren´t that far up. at the top it´s constantly erupting. Boom and all. The weather wasn´t the greatest so that view was hindered but I think I got some good shots of it. Also, apparently about 4 years ago it had a sizeable eruption that came vary close to people a too close for comfort to the town. By the way the lava was crazy thick and it´s close to Antigua. I´m at El Retrio and Lanquin now. The spelling is close so I think you can find it on a map or something. They have a website. I´m getting pressure off because those pics took forever to download. Next time I´m find a good internet cafe I´ll pay and others can´t say I´m on to long.


  1. Hey there baby bear!

    It's so good to hear from you again! The pictures are fantastic!! I'm sitting here trying to wrap my head around the image of you with a lava flow in the background---CRAZY!!

    You look terrific, and that big smile on your face tells me you're having the time of your life!

    Stay safe mi hijo. Blessings to you as you continue to explore, learn, and have fun.

    Te quiero!
    Mama Bear

  2. That's crazy ridiculous! You should get a lava-proof canoe!
