The agenda for Antigua was a volcano where you can roast marshmallows at the top. Yes, we have roasted marshmallows before but never without a camp fire! Armed with banana bread and skittles, both not very useful in warding off the vendors chasing us offering taxi horses and walking sticks, we make the trek up Pacaya Volcano. Pacaya's last eruption was in 2006 and a couple of years ago you could and see molten lava flow. Today, no such luck! It was still pretty spectacular though, even without the lava!
The guide pulls out a bag of the good stuff. Marshmallow time! One well organised guy had even bought up a steak to roast! I'm surprised Simon didn't think of this
Question: If there is only one little hot spot on the top of a volcano to roast marshmallows.. Is it possibly a set up for gullible tourists?
Either way we had a great time and come down the volcano with a beautiful sunset!
P.S. Chicken buses are driven like rally cars and if you don't hold on, you WILL go flying!
P.S.S. Simon is now known as Soloman thanks to some Canadian boys misunderstanding his accent!
