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.
