From the Eruption Zone

Boy, have we ever gotten behind in our postings. But, thats what vacations are for, we guess. Currently in Baños, Ecuador, nested in the skirts of Mt. Tunguragua, an active vocano which is currently acting up; booming and smoking and spraying mile-high plumes of smoke into the air. We have been told that if we hear sirens, its time to evacuate. My, it seems the explosions are getting closer and closer together. Theres one every few minutes now.

Almost 8 pm on New Years Eve. Weve managed to upload a few pictures from the eruption zone. Enjoy the party. Happy New Year everyone.
