Well this is not the same, but Laja is an insane volcano. It would have probably been better (read: safer) to navigate the volcanic rocks in an SUV instead of a Toyota Corolla, but, ummm, the Corolla was so much cheaper. Thomasin was afraid the entire time that I would drive off the cliff, but that was not to be. I'm not stupid.
The scenery was breathtaking and kind of scary. There were little memorials and flowers everywhere in remembrance of people who died. It is completely unclear how and why these people died, but I think it had something to do with the volcano. Either that or gout.
