Day One Hundred and Forty Two - Saturday 26th January 2013

We arrived at the tour agency in good time to pick up our equipment for the volcano climb and promptly set off in a minibus bound for the bottom end of a ski lift. There was the option of an hour long walk up to the top end of the lift, but like everyone else in the group we paid …
