... cruise ships.

After the tour, and taking care of some specific things I needed to document, we went to lunch. I was told my only 2 choices were Pollos Camperos (like KFC) or Domino's.

Once in La Soledad, we piled out of the van and had a brief chat before starting our ascent. Wilbur explained what our day would like; the hike would start off at roughly 1550 meters (5100 ft.) and finish at 3,975 meters (12,720 ft.). We would hike through four distinct environmental zones each of which should take us ...

Pacaya volcano
06:15 the minibus turned up and we picked up a few more to make 15. A variety of nationalities. An hour's drive out of town, through many little villages up and out of the bowl were in.
