Volcano Boarding Near Leon, Nicaragua

A single line of hikers trudged up the blackened earth in front of me. The ground shifted beneath me and suddenly I found myself three foot further down the volcano, Cerro Negro, than I had been before. The rocks and ash were burning to the touch.

Review of Times Hostel, Camden Place, Dublin
