This past Saturday, we hiked up a dormant volcano to a crater lake called Laguna de Chicabal. From the summit we were observing a buena vista, when all of a sudden another volcano erupted in the distance. We couldnīt hear anything, as it was probably about 8 - 10 kilometres away, but great clouds of smoke rose from its peak as lava flowed down its outer walls.
The next day we walked down a mountain road through a big cloud. You could see bright sunshine in the valley below. This kind of natural beauty is impossible to clearly explain or express in words. We didnīt even take a photograph. A picture wouldnīt have done it justice.
Iīm chomping at the bit for Friday at 1:00 p.m. to arrive; its then that the real adventure begins.
No more teachers, no more books...
