Climbing Volcano Pacaya (25km SE of Antigua)

The day after the NAPA-OT school finishes I go with Sarah V up one of the volcanoes close to Antigua. This was the first time for me climbing a volcano (unfortunately or fortunately there was no lava flowing!). Apparently there was an eruption only last year. People were toasting marshmallows at the summit with some of the steam holes. The Scenery was spectacular with the contrast of bright green grasses and black gravel of the volcano. There were some locals offering horse rides up the volcano for those that got tired! And dogs that followed us all the way - presumably for food!
