I recently wrote that we were in the town of Banos in Ecuador and that is is surrounded by volcanoes. Volcanoes that are still sometimes active. Well, three days ago, this happened:
It looks as though the Tungurahua Volcano blew its top on the morning of July 15th. No one has been reported injured and about 200 were evacuated from the nearby villages. I’m kind of bummed because we almost went on a bus tour of the crater a few weeks ago. If the tour company hadn’t been closed on the day we were free, we probably would have seen some interesting pre-explosion activity. Ah well, c’est la vie.
