Volcán de Fuego, 3763 m

One of the  three local volcanos is currently very active and is creating  a spectular display viewable from the roof garden at our hotel. Just before we arrived, lava could be seen coming down the mountainside, and upon our arrival it started spewing ash and the air was smoky.  Today, however, the activity has subsided, making for better air in town. So I thought I would put together my photos to let you share the excitement.

Evening hot chocolate and dessert. I was impressed by the artistry of the chocolate flower display.

  1. Spectacular! Such great timing to be able to see an erupting volcano (from a safe distance)! Hope the air stays good, especially when you have to get back on your bikes.

  2. Fabulous. And loving the extra photos on your stream. Weaving, architecture, “Donald eres….” signs… I wonder if Westjet flies there? 😉

  3. I certainly broadened my vocabulary when I looked up “pendejo.” I also just saw “Le apunta a México y centro América: Trump declara guerra contra los migrantes” on the front page of today’s Prensa Libre.

  4. Always relieved to see your posts and to therefore know you’ve arrived safely at your next destination! Nikki and I both also very much enjoy “vicariously” following along on your adventure!
    All the best!
