When armed, experienced and professional escorts are recommended to climb a volcano you may think the tourist town of Antigua would provide this. Two giggling guides with two horny horses is what we got. Unfortunately programming didnt condition Heather to climbing volcanos so she climbed on the trusty steed Lampara for the rest of the hike. After climbing to the dizzy heights of Pacaya we were given the tough choice either to watch the red hot lava spewing from the cone or Lampara opting for a piggy back from his equine chum and accidently slipping it in. WeŽll leave it to you to decide which one won. Walk back down involved skiing down volcanic ash slopes, in Chocos. Our feet have never been so bereft of dead skin.
