The silent volcano in the jungle

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Booking a room in the Arenal Observatory Lodge was a great idea; the hotel is situated in a spectacular environment, in the middle of the rain forest, close to the ‘active’ Arenal volcano.

The hike through the jungle this morning was superb, but unfortunately the volcano itself is covered in the clouds and instead of loud explosions and lava coming down the volcano cone, there is the sound of silence. The only thing I hear humming in the background is a variation of the Lion song, covered in the 80’s by Tight Fit:

‘In the Jungle, the mighty Jungle, the Volcano Sleeps Tonight’… 😉
