Intelligently I know that it's just hot water coming up from way below the surface where it's being heated, but intuitively you kind of just visualize molten lava right there under your feet! Anyway, the bubbling and gurgling noises and steam etc. would make for quite the movie set!
Following that, we hit the road and headed for home in Porto Formoso.
